Top 15 Athletes Who LOVE Strip Clubs Way Too Much

There is no feeling more horrifying and confusing than being told by a stripper "that will be $200.00" and realizing you zoned out in a beautiful whirl of lap-dancing and nudity. The choice then presents itself, does one run for one's life and hope not to get mutilated by bouncers, or bite the bullet and pay up. More often than not, "pay up" is the choice and the poor sap in question goes home broke and in shame.

It goes without saying, but being able to be the biggest spender in a strip club has to be a great feeling. Among the only people in the world who can have as much fun in "gentlemen's clubs" as they want are professional athletes. Millions of dollars per year can put plenty of young women "through college." Unlike working girls however, there is much less of a stigma if an athlete gets seen in a strip club and plenty fans love to live vicariously through their favorite star who just dropped $30,000 watching two girls I'm not allowed to write that each other on stage.

While there are plenty of other costly methods of finding female companionship, dropping thousands on strippers a couple of times per month may actually be more economical than marriage, with far less of that nasty legality issue that comes with hookers.  Here is a comprehensive list of our favorite athletes who have spent tons of time and money in strip clubs. But remember, just watch, trying to have as much fun as these guys may find you drunk, broke and being used as a speed bag by tough men several times your size.

15 Zach Randolph

Now playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, forward Zach Randolph has had a couple of interesting run-ins with strip club related mishaps. He was known to frequent these places, but two incidents stand out in particular. Back in May 2010, he was investigated for his part in a massive brawl at a gentlemen's club in Los Angeles.

14 Michael Phelps

Truth be told, Phelps himself has never admitted to this one or even addressed the issue. Back in 2009, the greatest Olympian of all time was featured in many newspapers and magazines for his stamina outside of the pool.

Four-time Pro Bowl selection and two time Super Bowl winning tight end Jeremy Shockey spent his early career with the New York Giants followed by three years with the New Orleans Saints and a single year in Carolina.

12 Brandon Jennings

Now with the Detroit Pistons, Brandon Jennings started out his NBA career with the Milwaukee Bucks, playing four seasons there. He is talented, and has some very notable NBA accolades, but there is some speculation over whether he can be called "elite".

Why list these stars together? Well, they were among the most notorious to be implicated in the infamous Gold Club criminal case. In short, the club came under a massive criminal investigation as it was believed to be a front for prostitution, money laundering and owner Steve Kaplan was alleged to have been associated with the Gambino crime family.

Pacman Jones is one of those NFL players who has had a successful but turbulent football career. He was named to the 2014 All-Pro team as a return specialist and was the only Cincinnati Bengal to receive such an honor.

7 Charles Barkley

One of the greats from the 80s and 90s who has continued to periodically dominate the limelight as a spokesman and analyst, Charles Barkley is also a well known patron of the strip clubs. One of the funniest moments of his post-playing career was his Hall of Fame induction speech in which he thanked the usual parties, including family, friends, and of course strippers!

6 Tiger Woods

A couple of months ago, I wrote an article detailing a nostalgic look at the hottest women Tiger Woods bedded during his glory days. Number one was Jamie Jungers; a perfect ten from Vegas. She called herself a model, but that's one of those words that can have multiple meanings. In her case, she was a stripper. Cheating is bad and all that jazz, but look at her, good for Tiger!

5 Lamar Odom

The currently unemployed Lamar Odom has a history of being seen with strippers. He was married from 2009 until 2013 and normally I'd feel bad for the wife of a man who frequented such places, but his wife was Khloe Kardashian; I could never feel bad for one of them.

4 Alex Rodriguez

For those who aren't fully versed in baseball "dirtbagerry," A-Rod is one of MLB's most notorious. Most people hate him for his multiple PED related controversies, but a few despise him for having been caught with strippers a few times, a couple of which occurred while he was married.

3 Dennis Rodman

One of the most unique and crazy stars in the history of the NBA, Dennis Rodman is also a huge fan of young women who remove their clothing for singles. He's never made a secret of it and whether he is celebrating something or feeling down, there is a good chance there will be strippers present.

2 Floyd Mayweather

1 Allen Iverson

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Allen Iverson is retired of course, but his financial woes have been in the news recently. He's played the deny game about his problems, but skeptics still consider the former guard star to be close to broke. In an interview earlier this year, former teammate Matt Barnes explained exactly how much Iverson loves strip clubs. He said that Iverson attended these clubs frequently and that EVERY time he went, he dropped between $30,000 and $40,000. This was occasionally a weekly event. That's a year's salary for plenty of poor souls and Iverson was throwing this amount of money like it was nothing.
