Cheap Cars Of Rich Athletes
Professional athletes earn millions every year, and a vast majority spend their money on fancy and luxurious cars. However, not everyone is giving their cash on vehicles, and some choose to live in the way as if they earn their living working a regular nine-to-five job. Here are five millionaire athletes who have cheap cars.
5. Nnamdi Asomugha
Nnamdi Asomugha is a humble guy, and despite having spent 11 years in the NFL and earned up to $11 million per year, he chose to live modestly. Recently he changed his career and became an actor, and you can watch Asomugha in a film called Crown Heights.
“I was never a big spender,” he told Davy Rothbart in an interview with Wealthsimple. “We didn’t have much growing up, so I guess I got used it. Even when I was a Pro Bowl player in the NFL, I lived the same way because that’s what I knew.”
To prove that, Asomugha still owns the 1997 Nissan Maxima he got from his brother and which he drove to his prom. “That car is the one thing that everyone makes fun of me for. Even after I started earning good money, I was still in the mentality of ‘I know this is all I need so I’m doing fine.’ ”
