The game itself has nothing to do with financial planning at all.
That said, I'd think a DotA player would have better financial sense than a pro athlete with a 7-8 figure contract because 1) none of them have won constantly enough to think the cash flow will continue forever, and 2) most of them have lived their careers with below minimum-wage earnings. Some of them have actually lived in poverty conditions before winning anything meaningful.
Many professional athletes never stay in the sport long enough to think the cash will flow forever. And two, if you think no NBA/NFL/Tennis/Soccer/etc. athlete never grew up poor, I have no idea what to tell you.

Isn't it time for post-TI the big reshuffle thread? :p
I asked the admins if I could create it, still waiting for an answer. Always tons of fun to do this!
I think they've already made it, it's in Dota 2 General section :p

Probably the only thing I hated about this international was how illusion heroes in general played way too prominent of a role in the draft, especially SD. Ticking time bomb DotA or fighting against low-risk illusion heroes is the most unfun shit in the world.
Yeah, it was truly a horrible feeling to see some teams slowly choked out by strong juggernaut or anti-mage manta style (or shadow demon) illusions, almost having no choice by to rush out and fight in a bad positions against a team that's much stronger than them unless the just sack their barracks. Most of the team, it's fine, and the defending team has some viable options, but in some games, it was dreadful to see. It made a comeback seem impossible, allowing for a very one-sided and dragged-out end of games.
