    I know the NBA has a program for rookies that shows them how to manage money and numerous things like that... but if youre talking about athletes that havealready gone broke and need help then im not to sure

    Help athletes AVOID financial trouble?

    Or helping Athletes out of financial trouble?

    I'm all for the former, however in regards to the latter: Any athlete that is actually in financial trouble is an idiot.
