Poor investment decisions
Pippen wasn’t good with handling money when playing. He reportedly lost about $27 million in bad investments in his career.
He borrowed $4.375 million to purchase a Gulfstream II jet in 2002. Even though he earned over $100 million playing in the NBA, Pippen couldn’t pay the bills on his private jet, and was later ordered to pay the debt-holder $5 million.
In 2011, there were reports by a few media outlets saying Pippen was bankrupt. Pippen reacted by suing these media outlets for falsely reporting he was broke.
