Another good LBYM story

Here is a 24 year old NBA superstar who lives well below his means:

...he still drives the same car he did in high school. Just as a reminder, Leonard agreed to a five-year, $94 million extension over the summer:

He often drives a rehabbed '97 Chevy Tahoe, nicknamed Gas Guzzler, which he drove across Southern California's Inland Empire as a teenager. "It runs," Leonard explains, "and it's paid off."

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
