There’s an interesting piece in the Friday edition of the Wall Street Journal. It’s about athletes and the members of their entourage.
The article notes that boxer Oscar De La Hoya saved over $ 400,000 a year by firing ten of his friends from his entourage. De La Hoya still employs 50 people.
Ron Artest was also mentioned in the article. Artest once had about 30 hanger-ons pose for an entourage photo for ESPN The Magazine.
