That's What I'm Talkin' Bout
It's bad enough that the nation's jobless rate is 9.7%. But the real national employment rate is even higher than the U.S. Department of Labor's figure shows. Can you dig 16% or higher. With that in mind it's damn hard for me to get hip to what the N.B.A. players want. Under an equity arrangement,players would give up some money that is now guaranteed. That's right. Talkin' bout give it up or turn it loose.How bout the N.B.A. guarantee that for every home game played. The players will donate money in there home city to help feed the poor. Makin' 2.5 million comeing off the bench to play 3 min in a N.B.A. game. and maybe not play at all. Is sick. The N.B.A. needs a drastically different approach.
