Social media users have long aired out their grievances out with VH1’s Basketball Wives. Over the years, there have been arguments about the women not being actual wives to very few men in the NBA being shown on the series. However, there is one husband that has remained a permanent fixture on the franchise: Doug Christie.
Viewers are all well-aware of Doug Christie and his contributions to the NBA. Throughout Doug’s career, the 52-year-old has played for some of the league’s most notable teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers and the Toronto Raptors. And since Doug has been retired from the league for quite some time, fans are wondering about his life and finances post-NBA. So, what is Doug Christie’s net worth? Here’s the 4-1-1.
Doug Christie’s net worth will continue to rise in 2022 and beyond.
As of this writing, Celebrity Net Worth reports that Doug has earned a net worth of $20 million. Not too shabby for a retired NBA player! This figure is directly linked to Doug being a player for various NBA teams and becoming an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings. Since Doug’s time as a member of the Sacramento Kings coaching staff will not be coming to an end anytime soon, we expect his net worth to flourish.

Doug Christie and his wife, Jackie Christie, renew their vows every year.
Not only is Doug fruitful with his finances, but the former shooting guard has also been successful in the love department. Doug is a familiar face on VH1’s Basketball Wives, thanks to his wife, Jackie Christie.
Even though Jackie has a reputation for being a bit crazy, fans have fallen in love with the star and how much Doug consistently supports and loves his wife. Not to mention, the couple celebrates their love story every year by renewing their vows.
In the Season 10 premiere of Basketball Wives, fans watched as Doug and Jackie jumped the broom yet again for their 26th anniversary, which brings their cow renewal total to a whopping 26 vow renewal ceremonies.

Like it or not, Doug and Jackie Christie are the longest-standing couple on Basketball Wives. And for many, they will continue to be the standard for having a long-lasting marriage.
