I’m sorry, but I am so sick and tired of hearing about these basketball players getting paid stupid money in these trade deals.
It’s bad enough that people are struggling to get by financially in this economy and they are getting paid disgusting amounts of money, but many of these players are not even good enough to deserve these contracts.
Some of these players are superstars in their own minds and think they deserve a whole pile of money, but how much are they really going to bring to their team next season? In fact, how much did they even do last season?
This constant focus on money and unnecessary high pay cheques are also contributing to the diluted play in the NBA, which I hate. There are far too many players now who are all about the money rather than being all about the basketball. Yes, it’s all good getting paid, but it should be all about the passion and desire to win.
Seeing all this madness has got me frustrated and confused in my mind, but more than anything, it’s making me worried about the future of the NBA and men’s basketball in the US. Something has to change.
