Think it’s all fun and games when you’re making $15 million a year? Well, it’s not. Just ask Houston Rockets star James Harden, who took to Instagram on Friday to share some emotional thoughts about money.
“Money is a powerful thing,” Harden wrote alongside the photo you see above. “Losing family and friends over it. I didn’t sign up for this.”
Most people don’t want to hear athletes complaining about money, but this is a real issue. Family and friends come crawling out of the woodwork looking for handouts, and some even alienate you because you refuse to give them money for no reason. Harden isn’t the only professional athlete who feels that way.Google+
