Scottie Pippen

Scottie Pippen earned $120 million during his career, which included six championships with the Chicago Bulls and fellow team member Michael Jordan. But he lost most of his earnings—including $27 million on bad investments and $4.3 million on a Gulfstream jet that was grounded months after its purchase. He sued his attorneys for failing to monitor the jet purchase, won the lawsuit and was awarded a quarter of the reward sought.
