It’s fair to say that these past and present NBA legends have done all right for themselves in the amassing-a-fortune stakes.

40. Michael Finley – $65 million
Michael Finley enjoyed a 15-year career in the NBA, most notably winning an NBA title in 2007 as the San Antonio Spurs’ small forward. Nowadays, though, he’s a film producer with credits including awards-bait The Birth of a Nation and The Butler. His net worth is reportedly $65 million.
Finley and Rebekah Hosey were already parents to son Micah by the time they wed in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, in 2006. Previously, Hosey had earned a Business Management degree before becoming a personal trainer and a keen supporter of charities.
