DeShawn Stevenson of the Brooklyn Nets has his own personal cash machine

Marketplace Contributor Jun 4, 2012

I’m not speaking metaphorically, like, “DeShawn’s great uncle Reynold sure acts like his personal cash machine.” I mean literally. Like, he has an ATM in his house. Yes, Apple’s Square has gone over big. Sure, more mobile payment systems are on their way. But if you’re a big shot with a lot of money, you’re gonna wanna ignore all that talk about the cashless economy and keep it green. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
