Star athletes mismanaging their money has unfortunately become a common occurrence over the past couple of decades. Either players hang out with the wrong crowd that enjoy taking advantage of their newfound wealth, or they hire a financial manager who wastes away their fortune.
Ex-NBA player Darius Miles is the latest in a long line of athletes forced to file for bankruptcy, and he sold some extremely interesting items in his bankruptcy sale.

According to TMZ Sports the bankruptcy sale included the following items: signed jerseys by LeBron James and Larry Bird, and autographed shoes from Dirk and Lamar Odom. Woah.
Miles reportedly made $12,780 during the sale that included many more items, which slightly eased the pain of his bankruptcy. After making around $60 million in his NBA career, Miles has been forced to resort to a large-scale garage sale selling many of his prized items.
