    Quinn Cook Strikes It Rich

    Quinn is now 4th on the list of all time richest basketball players, one slot above his old teammate, LeBron James (5).

    https://www.therichest.com/top-lists...tball-players/

    But seriously, I ran into this link a few weeks ago and keep checking to see if it has been corrected.

    It's amusing that Quinn got mixed up with someone else, although I can't figure out who. All the other big names appear to be on the list. Whoever wrote this must not know much about basketball.
    Hard at work making beautiful things.

    I read the headline and figured he found oil or something.

    Well, the first thing you know, Quinn Cook's a billionaire,
    LeBron James said, "Quinn, move away from there!"
    He said, "California is the place you ought to be
    'Cause I need a man from Duke, not a schmuck from UNC."

    Bwahaha. So ridiculous that it's hilarious. Good lord brev
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Quinn could be a great investor for all we know. He may have gotten in early on GameStop. Interesting that Jordan, Johnson and Cook all won the NCAA championship and multiple NBA championships. Interesting to see Junior Bridgeman up there- he clearly managed his post NBA career very well.

    There was a recent article about Luol Deng's real estate empire, partially inspired by mentorship from Jamie Dimon (CEO of JPM).

    That article is all kinds of wrong. I mean... Chris Paul has made 300 million in salary alone. And that's just one example.

    The list is net worth, so theoretically Paul could have blown big part of his income. But yea, I think itís just another document anyone could put together with limited effort and nothing to back it up.

    Here is a little about Quinn's investments: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michael...dent-athletes/

    Not only has Cook utilized his time with Golden State and Los Angeles to elevate his playing profile, but he’s expanding his off-court ventures as well, relying on former and current teammates to help guide him in business and investments. Cook’s financial interests include blockchain technology, AI, machine learning, direct-to-consumer goods, SaaS, and consumer/traction services.
    I agree that his salary (career earnings of $6 Million) would not provide enough capital to account for a net worth of $500 Million unless he hit a homerun in cryptocurrencies. https://www.spotrac.com/nba/clevelan...cash-earnings/

    Quinn also does not appear on the Forbes site itself: https://www.forbes.com/athletes/list/ where he would have been shown in the Top 5.

    Here it says Quinn's net worth is $500 thousand. https://www.celebritynetworth123.com...ook-net-worth/
    And here between $100 thousand and $1 million. https://www.celebsmoney.com/net-worth/quinn-cook/
    It seems they slipped a few digits. You can download a spreadsheet from the Forbes site (for a fee) and whoever did the compiling for therichest.com messed up.

    Looks like Quinn may be the Bitcoin Baron.

    Would be amazing if Quinn ended up at the top of the heap. He is a very smart and personable guy.

    How would this effect this ongoing perception that he is destined to coach?

    Is there any such perception? I have seen some folks wishing he would be interested, but nothing remotely approaching suggesting he is destined to coach.

    Only about half a billion. Notice oil is not mention in the updated song, as Quinn's investments remain largely unknown, but clearly profitable.

    Brev... I was trying to come up with a title that would entice folks to click on the link.

    Got my attention, but then again I read it as "Quinn Cook Strikes It, Rich"
