On the front page of the latest Forbes, Tony Parker is one of the biggest fortunes in France. But the former Spurs leader did not forget when the bailiffs showed up at his parents’ house…

His new companion, Agathe Teyssier, is very proud. The young woman did not fail to relay the latest cover of Forbes, on which appears Tony Parker, “Champion of reconversion”. If he does not have a say in the latest Forbes Ranking of billionaires published this spring, TP can be proud of a nice nest egg.

150 million dollars. This is more or less the earnings accumulated by Tony Parker during his glorious NBA career, ending with four championship rings. A sum to which is added the income generated from its sponsorship contracts. But the former Parisian also succeeded in his reconversion by becoming the boss of ASVEL and above all by increasing investments, whether in a vineyard in Vaucluse, in ski resorts, in new technologies or music. His fortune is now around 500 million euros according to certain specialized sites.

The former basketball player can therefore allow himself some splurges such as the purchase of a yacht last year for nearly 10 million euros. However, the native of Bruges has not forgotten his young years. “My parents always raised me with the idea of ​​never forgetting where we come from. We grew up in a very modest environment. There are things that mark you in your life”he told us last spring in the show Quelle époque, on France 2.

Tony Parker has not forgotten

And TP to give a very specific example. “For example, to see a bailiff come to your house to take the TV, take a piece of furniture. And it leaves you with scars. I was 9 years old”, he continued, explaining that these tests had also helped him succeed: “It leaves a mark on you and it gave me a certain motivation for my whole life. »

However, making money was not a goal in itself. “I played basketball for the right reasons,” he explained, sending a challenge to the younger generations: “It’s true, it’s a shame to see young people and their first question is ‘what’s it like to be rich?’ or ‘how does it feel to be famous?’ Me, when I played and did basketball camps, my first questions were ‘how do you do this movement?’, ‘how do you shoot there?’ You shouldn’t do sports for the wrong reasons. »
