Look, I’m not going to try to tell you how to spend your money. You worked hard for it and if you want to spend it on the new Snow Patrol record when it comes out, then go for it. It’s your life.

However, if you’ve got $75,000 and nothing you really want to buy, why not donate to Chauncey Billups’ youth basketball foundation and have him bake you a cake? I’m assuming you can pick the flavor — yellow with chocolate icing would be best, but again, it’s up to you — and not having to bake your own cake will save you a ton of time when you’re hungry for cake.

But that’s just the tip of the donationberg.

Got $100,000 and decent at golf? Go beat Chauncey Billups at golf. If people still throw dinner parties, this is a great story to tell at those. If not, this is still a nice way to spend 100 Gs and three hours of your time if you’re the kind of guy who can spend 100K, no stress.

If you are, here’s the coup de grĂ¢ce.

$200,000 for Chauncey Billups to rock your party? Totally worth it. Plus, since he’s 35 years old, I’m thinking he’d play a bunch of old school hip-hop. Some Blackstreet, a little Big Pun, maybe the poppier Wu-Tang tracks — I’m just brainstorming here, but these hot traxx should be right up his wheelhouse.

Personally, I’m thinking of springing for the whole shebang. $425,000 buys you a day of golf, a great party, a delicious cake and the leadership you can only get from a guy like Chauncey Billups. That’s a bargain at twice the price.
