Professional athletes can make millions of dollars - and some of them can burn through it just as quickly.

Take Vegas Golden Knights goalie Robin Lehner, who filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last month despite signing a $25 million contract back in 2020.

Lehner claims he's in debt for over $50 million, and is currently being sued over missed loan payments.

The 31-year-old goaltender will have plenty of time to focus on his balance sheets - Lehner has been out of action this season while recovering from hip surgery.

What do you think happens in cases like this where pro athletes go broke? What would you spend $50 million on?
