Top 10 Athletes Who Should Have Hired a Good Accountant

Steve Berman, LedgerLink

October 20, 2009

6. Kenny Anderson



Most people assume the term “allowance” is usually specifically related to money given to a child each month. Kenny Anderson took it to another level, admitting that part of his budget included $10,000 per month for what he dubbed “hanging out money.”

Unfortunately, that money was for his own hanging out expenses, not his kids’ (of which the former NBA point guard has seven), because unpaid child support is just one of the reasons Anderson went broke after making around $60 million in his 14-year career with the Nets, Hornets, Blazers, Celtics, Sonics, Pacers, Hawks and Clippers. Anderson had monthly expenses of around $41,000 in all, including payments on eight cars, a Beverly Hills home and constant monetary gifts to friends and family.

Another turning point for Anderson’s finances was when he married Tami Akbar (now Tami Roman, pictured), a former cast member on The Real World: Los Angeles. Tami filed for divorce from Anderson in 1998 citing infidelity and successfully challenged a $5.8 million pre-nuptial agreement.

Roman, who had her jaw wired shut to lose weight while on The Real World, was awarded a large amount of Anderson’s assets as a result of the divorce. To celebrate she had a vanity license plate made reading “HISCASH”. Not anymore!
