Not to be mistaken with a real financial advisor or accoutant, which many star athletes somehow fail to employ. This member of the crew has sway over much of the athlete's purchasing decisions, which poses its own problems. Although he may earn brownie points for talking the athlete out of dropping a few K on a $3,000 shearling-lined Rick Owens bomber jacket in the summer, it's important to remember his own intentions. Every member of a star athlete's crew is trying to somehow get themselves ahead by using their new BFF—if talking your boy out of buying a $3,000 jacket leads to that money being spent on the table during a night out or in the pockets of a friend for an investment on the side, then it's in that person's best interests to drive the money from the athlete's wallet to his. It always happens too.
