All he did was take a picture if a Bentley. Most Bentley's take a good while to get made to your custom settings.

I think we all understand that, enjoying life, but there are tons of broke athletes and artists. He should be saving now, and buy for fun later. You never know he could get seriously hurt, or it could be the start of bad money habits. So I know it wouldn't be my first purchase when I have a decent car as is. It's all for show, which is silly, but it's the world we live I guess. Material

You're worried about him getting injured and going broke already, and he probably hasn't even put on pads since he left South Carolina. I would hate to see how much you fear when he starts getting paychecks and starts buying houses (for himself and mother).

You can pretty much guarantee that he is going to buy his mother a house, and car, and probably support her in many other ways too. You can also pretty much guarantee that he is going to buy a nice luxurious car, which probably will include a V8 or higher engine, which will be capable of going very fast.

I don't understand the fear of him getting hurt, or getting a nice car. It is his life, and is money. This is his opportunity. Let the man live his life without having people try to tell him what to do with it. Other than your significant other, who tells you want to do on a daily basis (with finance options)?

Celebrities and other people with a lot of money tell him should buy things like Bentleys because he about to get rich so I am going to tell him he should buy a Camry and invest as much as you can without blowing it right away. All you need is a reliable to car to get you to your job or time or better yet early for practice and workouts where you are going to show your boss how you are going to work your butt off, not looking at things like Bentleys meant for partying and showing and and getting in trouble.

I can't stop the guy from doing what he wants, but when I see these guys go out and immediately start buying all this sh*t it is very clear to me that they are not responsible or mature enough to handle all this money thrown their way.

I understand where you're coming from, but just because he is looking at an expensive car doesn't mean that someone told him to buy it. He honestly could just want it.

If you (or anyone) is upset with people telling me what he should buy, then you're pretty much going to be fighting with global media, since it's the "media" that puts out the image that no one goes broke when they're rich, and that rich people can buy anything and everything they want without any financial worries.

He's going to splurge a little. That is one of the benefits of having access to loads of cash. The problem comes after his first year. If he is in the prime of his career still spending millions on junk then people should be worried about his financial security. But not right now. In my opinion, at least.

It's comforting to know we have so many financial advisers here on this site. If I need advice, I know who to come too. I need to come to the people who want me to invest in fake internet coins with my real money.

Bitcoin is/was a really smart investment if you purchased stock at the right time. It use to be a penny-stock, and has since exploded onto the scene. It had a risk of failing, but it's resurged a little since then.

If you would've bought upwards of 40,000 shares when it was a penny stock (literally would've been $400 investment), then you would've been sitting pretty with a couple thousand return on investment now. As for ripple, etc. I have no idea about.

I remember reading about Bitcoin when it was a penny stock though. Some dude bought 80,000 shares one night 4 or 5 years ago, and forgot about it, and then sold his 80,000 shares for like 7.2 Million.

They tell him by their image. I just hope he stays grounded, stays out trouble and invests his money wisely. Big house, fancy car or two sure. Just hope he doesn't over do it and he should be spending the money before he actually has it.

True, and I agree. My point was more so that now isn't the time to worry. But I agree, if he starts buying a lot of expensive assets "just cause" then I would worry a little. Not so much though, cause it's his life and my input wouldn't matter to him.
