And I’m suppose to feel sorry for Lebron James for what reasons? He makes $19 million a year for a game that he is suppose to love. A game that he is qutoed in saying “I would play for nothing”. Don’t get me wrong, I love to watch and play sports like most people, but I don’t think there is one person out there that is worth $20 million a year to play a game for 5 months. Yet we are in a recession and these athletes are complaining that they want more money.
Now wonder our society is sooooo screwed up. We went from idiolizing fire men, teachers, police officers, astronauts, and doctors. Too over paid whiners.
What is funny is that in Japan teachers are one of the highest paid positions and the pro-athlete is in the middle. And yet their kids still idiolize the same athletes and their teachers, but they have their priorities straight.
We need to quite giving in to these athletes demands, get rid of their agents and give them all a flat pay just like the rest of the workforce. I don’t get paid because I’m better at the same position as the next guy. i get paid for my years of experience. why can’t we do that to these guys.
It’s no wonder why kids these days don’t want to go to college. They see these guys coming out of high school making tons of money.

The problem is people that complain about capitalism. Lebron had a choice to play wherever he wanted, he is not a slave. Also, Lebron went to Miami for a lot less money.
