Last year in April, after eight seasons in the NBA, with the Wizards, Jazz, Nets, Sixers and Pacers, and an international season in China, Trevor Booker ended his career and hung up his tennis shoes.
While Booker has made more than $ 34 million over the course of his career, which is enough money for several lifetimes, this amount could be just “peanuts” for him.
Not many fans know that Booker, while playing in the NBA, built a business empire alongside his college roommate, Jonah Baize.
They own more than 12 companies, have a shared interest in half a dozen more, a group of six private schools (Combine Academy), own more than 200 real estate gates (residential and commercial) in various states, a share of DC United Soccer and began investing in startups.
In previous interviews, Booker stated that his plan was to become a billionaire, but during his appearance on our court cases podcast, he revealed that he no longer plans to become one, has outgrown himself, and said that his goal now is to become a billionaire:
Len Werle from OpenCourt-Basketball: “You said in an interview that you plan to become a billionaire”
Trevor Booker: “Well my original goal was to become a billionaire, but I’ve been thinking about it lately. I think I want to win a billion! I think it is realistic, especially with the times we live in: wages will continue to rise, inflation, technology, there is a lot of money in technology, I think it is a realistic goal.
