$25 Million

John Starks Net Worth: John Starks is an American retired pro basketball shooting guard who has a net worth of $25 million. John Starks was born August 10, 1965 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Although he was not drafted in the 1988 NBA Draft after attending four colleges in his native Oklahoma, including Oklahoma State University, he gained fame playing for the New York Knicks of the NBA in the '90s. Starks was at the center of one of the most famous plays in Knicks history, which has now become known simply as "The Dunk". In Game 2 of the 1993 Eastern Conference Finals against the Chicago Bulls, Starks was in the right corner of the court being closely guarded by B.J. Armstrong. Ewing came to set a screen for Starks who faked to the left like he was going to use the pick then drove along the baseline and dunked over Michael Jordan and Horace Grant with his left hand. After he played briefly for the Golden State Warriors, Starks played for the Bulls and Utah Jazz before failing to make an NBA team in 2002 and retiring with 10,829 career points. He currently works for the Knicks as an alumnus and fan development official, and as a pre-and-post-game analyst on MSG Network's home Knicks game coverage. He has also served as the head coach of the Maulers, a Slamball team. His autobiography, John Starks: My Life, was published in 2004. Starks is part owner and marketer for the Ektio basketball shoe, which doctor and former college basketball player Barry Katz designed to reduce ankle injuries. His legacy is his fierce tenacity, desire to win and heart, though Starks's fiery intensity often led to emotional displays on the court. Reggie Miller, star shooting guard for the Indiana Pacers, often provoked Starks and Miller became the target of Starks' ire; during one playoff game, Starks was ejected for head-butting Miller.
