9. Sheryl Swoopes
Just a few years back, Sheryl Swoopes was known as the ‘female Michael Jordan’. A WNBA and NCAA star, she earned most of her income from these two athletic events. However, her large income did not suffice her lifestyle. She spent more than she earned, resulting in bankruptcy and bad credit scores. Most of her assets were liquidated in the bankruptcy proceedings. This also included some of her uniforms, medals, and trophies that ended up in an auction as part of the contract.
