Tracy McGrady Has a New Online Deals Site | Gizmodo

Don't scoff, this is a really savvy concept for Tracy McGrady. One of the fundamental aspects of sound investing is in building a diversified base. That way, if one goes sour (like, say, a sneaker deal), there are other revenue streams in place to weather the storm. T-Mac is nearing the end of his career, so it is pretty smart of him to be creating small revenue streams that can carry him through retirement. Given that T-Mac once bought a jet because it seemed like a good idea at the time, I'm encouraged to see him taking this route now.
