Jesse Riedel, fondly known as Jesser, started his YouTube channel in 2013 after graduating from university. His early days were mostly about blending online gaming and basketball in some fashion, like uploading comedic clips from NBA 2K. He also built an audience by playing long-running franchises like CS: GO and Minecraft.

Despite widening his range, focusing on the NBA was his main appeal. Doing so spawned various video series where he challenged friends and surpassed basketball challenges, earning him more attention the wilder they got.

Fast forward to 2023, and now Jesser is one of many big names on YouTube centered on sports-like content. His net worth has skyrocketed due to his fame to levels the creator probably never anticipated years ago.

It’s hard to estimate the creator’s earnings from merchandise with these different affiliates, but based on his YouTube alone, it’s fair to say he’s far above the $4 he made last year.

Jesser’s popularity went up after his basketball match with rapper YK Osiris.

It’s not uncommon for YouTubers to start gaining popularity after getting celebrities or well-known personalities on their channel. For Jesser, he played a 1v1 basketball match with rapper YK Osiris for $60,000 in 2021.

What’s interesting about this match is that Jesser recently claimed YK never paid up the $60,000 after losing. Per Daily Loud, Jesser called YK a “scammer” over the incident.

Supposedly, the rapper left without paying and never responded to Jesser’s text messages. News of this went out on Sept. 14, 2023, and the rapper has yet to respond to the claim.
