    Haywood would have to wait over 10 years to see any real money from that 10% ownership. Until the Air Jordan's came out, Nike was popular, but hardly a billion dollar company!

    Even if know nothing about contracts, it’s common sense that you take owning a part of a company cuz it’s consist revenue

    cubbiemalone49 i totally get where you’re coming from don’t get me wrong, but in his defense there was no way he would’ve known the 10% stake would become what it is today.

    the title is misleading. It makes you think that he actually lost 8 billion dollars when in reality he just missed out on the opportunity of 8 billion

    Yeah but he could have very well been persuaded a couple years later to sell his share and could have walked away with a lucrative deal that no one woul argue with...until you look at it in hindsight. Say 5 years later, his 10% was worth $20mil. Not bad right? Would have made him probably the wealthiest player at the time...but in hindsight 20mil pales in comparison.

    The student didn’t make Nike his coach did and the student was Nike’s first athlete (Edit) the students name was Steve prefontaine and he later became an Olympic runner

    Idiot agent would have a 1% stake. He's working on derivative or looking for marks?

    Shiiiiittt they could give me that deal when I was 22-23 and I'd of taken the 100,000 if only to have a sure fire way to pay off my student loans but that's just me. If I had known I could not only buy them off but have 8 bil to buy the place I owed and then some? I'd beat the breaks off my Agent.

    Spencer Haywood had a full beard in his younger days, his appearance was masculine and virile and was married to Iman the worlds first supermodel from 1977-1987 today he’s clean shaven and look emasculated his decision to shave his beard is akin to someone having a successful business generating enormous profits waking up one day and saying he’s giving up the business and looking for a job, everybody go for what they KNOW...............and play their position,life is what you make it.
