Money Money Money
It’s no secret that professional sports stars make a lot of money. When you have that much money, huge spending sprees that would make any normal person’s jaw drop are inevitable.
In this list, we will be sharing some of the biggest sports stars, like Curry and O’Neal, most extravagant purchases.
Tom Brady owns various luxury homes in places like Brookline, Los Angeles, and New York City. Tom Brady and his supermodel wife seem to spend a lot of money investing in properties!

Even though Woods started as a struggling sportsman, his extravagant spending sprees prove that he has more than made up for those years.

Soccer is the world’s most popular sport and one can only imagine how much money the best players make. Not only does Ronaldo make a lot of money from playing soccer, but he also utilizes his name with endorsements and investments.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.
This boxer is no stranger to owning expensive cars, most successful sports stars do. What makes Mayweather’s assets impressive is that it includes a private jet!
His private jet has beautiful leather seats, an entertainment system, and a large bed. Mayweather even has an on-call masseuse that joins him whenever he pleases.
This basketball player is more fond of watches than the average man. He loves watches so much that he is willing to spend millions on them. Pretty standard right?
Not only does Curry have a watch collection that is worth more than you could ever imagine, but he also has a mansion for his family and a separate condo for his wife. This condo has a huge dining room and bathtubs made out of marble. Not all of his money goes to material items as he enjoys spending it on various charities and his pursuits as a movie producer.
Shaq is not very well-known for his ability to be smart with his money. He went on a million-dollar shopping spree and his extravagance did not stop there.
