    Talking Adopt an NBA player!

    Adopt an NBA player


    With an NBA player's strike against the team owners
    looming, now is the time for us to show the world just
    how much we care. It's just not right. Hundreds of
    basketball players in our very own country are living at
    or just below the seven-figure salary level! Atrocious!
    And, as if that weren't bad enough, they will be
    deprived of pay for several weeks--possibly a whole
    year--as a result of the strike. But now you can help!
    For about two thousand dollars a day--that's less than
    the cost of a large screen projection TV--you can help a
    basketball player remain economically viable during his
    time of need.

    Two thousand dollars a day may not seem like a lot of
    money to you, but to a basketball player it could mean
    the difference between a vacation spent golfing in
    Florida or a Mediterranean cruise. For you, two thousand
    dollars is nothing more than three months rent or
    mortgage payments. But to a basketball player, two
    thousand dollars a day will almost replace his salary.
    Your commitment of two thousand dollars a day will
    enable a player to buy that home entertainment center,
    trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy
    a weekend in Rio.


    Each month, you will receive a complete financial report
    on the player you sponsor. Detailed information about
    his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other
    investment holdings will be mailed to your home. You'll
    also get information on how he plans to invest the $5
    million lump sum he will receive upon retirement. Plus
    upon signing up for this program, you will receive a
    photo of the player (unsigned). Put the photo on your
    refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.


    Your basketball player will be told that he has a
    SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need.
    Although the player won't know your name, he will be
    able to make collect calls to your home via a special
    operator just in case additional funds are needed for
    unexpected expenses.

    Sine Artest is talking about playing next year for no money (provided they resign Bonzi and keep Adelman) I'm sure he's at the top of everyone's wish list.
