An NBA Legend Turned Down 10 Percent of Nike for $100,000

nba-legend-almost-owned-10-percent-of-nike

NBA legend Spencer Haywood has a championship ring, an Olympic gold medal, and was recently inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Early in his career, the former NBA All-Star also landed an endorsement deal with then-struggling sportswear brand Nike. That opportunity, however, was unfortunately one that Haywood didn’t conquer with the same level of success.

In the early ’70s, Haywood was approached by Nike to promote its products in exchange for 10% ownership of the company. Instead, the fast-rising star for the Seattle Supersonics chose to take a one-time cash guarantee of $100,000. As Haywood explains in a recent profile by Click on Detroit, he was convinced to take the quick payout by his agent at the time, who wanted to go for the lump sum to ensure he got his commission. Needless to say, the choice ended up being a very costly mistake. Had Haywood opted to accept Nike’s original offer and held on to the ownership stake, today his holdings in the company would be worth a whopping $8.62 billion. That one’s gotta sting.

Hit the jump to check out Haywood in a vintage Nike ad from 1973. According to the five-time NBA All-Star, he did the ad for free.

This App Lets You Fly Unlimited Flights for a Flat Monthly Fee

Love flying? Hate fluctuating air fares? Travel for business constantly or have tons of free time on your hands? There’s lots of reasons to download and sign up to OneGo — a new subscription-based air flight program. The app will allow users to fly an unlimited amount of flights domestically for set monthly fees ranging from $1,500 USD to $2,950 USD, on many major carriers. This means you could theoretically fly every day of the month, round trip, and each fare would be less than $100 USD. While the service currently is limited to economy seats only and is restricted to the continental United States (sorry Alaska and Hawaii) with reservation limits, this new fee-based system could open up the floodgates to more services that could incorporate business/first class, international flights, luggage allowances, cancellations and much more. Check out OneGo’s official website if you’re interested and have safe flights.
