Dime: So what have you been up to since you retired?

Jamal Mashburn: Lot of things. I started with ESPN four years ago. Lots of people don't know but I was a communications major in college. I didn't anticipate doing what I studied in college, but when I finished my basketball career it made sense. I've always been in business and own franchises of Papa John's, Dunkin' Donuts and Outback Steakhouse, as well as car dealerships. I own over 34 Outbacks, 37 Papa John's and dealerships in Kentucky. I've always wanted to carry a briefcase. It's just something you want to do growing up in NYC. When I was younger, I always wondered what was in them.

He said it was in Kentucky so I'm sure Lexington has a few.

That is awesome. He sounds like quite a successful businessman. I bet he's making a killing off of these. I know some people that franchise in the neighborhood of 15 fast food stores and they've made a very successful living off of it. God only knows what he's making off of almost 80 restaurants.
