One of the most successful African-American's in the United States, Ulysses Lee "Junior" Bridgeman has a net worth of $240 Million. Interestingly enough, he didn't make he made most of his money after most people would say his career "ended." Born in 1953 in Chicago, Indiana (Yeh, Indiana) he had a incredible knack for basketball. He lead his basketball team to their first state championship. At 6'5'', he was eventually drafted by the LA Lakers, where he continued on a very successful 12 year career, scoring 11,517 career points. After ending his career, most people would have sat back and lived off their fortune from a career as a professional athlete. But Bridgeman was different. He was smart. He took the money he made and (are you listening 'every 2nd string althelete?) INVESTED it in franchises. Specifically Wendy's food chains. He now owns 160 Wendy's, as well as a growing number of Chili's restaurants (118 and counting). And it doesn't seem like he's slowing down. He also sits on the board of the PGA, and owns a stake in Milwaukee soda's Black Bear Beverages. You can't help but respect people like him.
