15 Retired NBA Players Who Are Now Working 9 To 5


Having made millions of dollars in the NBA, former players can start a whole new life after their retirement. Some, like Shaq and Charles Barkley, stay in the spotlight and move into television. Some, like Shawn Kemp and Tim Duncan, opt to live a normal life and work 9-5 jobs. Their stories are incredible, and we can't wait to share what these retired NBA stars are doing now.

1. Shawn Kemp - Sports Bar Owner

After he retired from basketball, the former 6-time All-Star opened a sports bar called Oskar's Kitchen in Seattle. The bar was a favorite watering hole with locals due to its cheap drinks and hangover-curing grub. Sadly in 2015, Shawn had to close it down. Today, he still works in hospitality as a part owner of Amber's Kitchen in Seattle.
