Alcohol abuse has it’s cost, but most of us can’t imagine losing a $100 million dollar fortune. NBA superstar Vin Baker lost it all and is starting over.
Here’s what Vin had to say, as the 43-year old former superstar reflected on his life.
“When you learn lessons in life, no matter what level you’re at financially, the important part to realize is it could happen. I was an alcoholic, I lost a fortune. I had great talent and lost it. For the people on the outside looking in, they’re like ‘Wow.’ For me, I’m 43 and I have four kids. I have to pick up the pieces. I’m a father. I’m a minister in my father’s church. I have to take the story and show that you can bounce back. If I use my notoriety in the right way, most people will appreciate this guy is just trying to bounce back in his life.”
Vin Baker is happy to be beginning again, sober with a shot at a life with his family.
