...would you?

What if it was the mob?
Or the commissioner?
An owner?
Higher up CEO, bankers, businessmen local and/or foreign?
Don't laugh this off like we live on Sesame Street and no one would ever think of such a thing.

If it were you, what would you do?

If politicians can be bought, and thus their votes, what makes you think athletes can't be?

Did you find it interesting that Bynum was mad enough to hurt JJ & embarrass himself by taking his jersey off (thus losing money and being suspended)
Odom was mad enough to get thrown from the game
But Kobe never seemed mad. Magic Johnson was more frustrated than Kobe ever was. Down 2, down 3, didn't matter. Kobe was like "not a single fukk was given..." in interviews.

And now it's Lebron's turn. This dominant freak of nature went Bambi on us, and couldn't care less. He's a happy beta all of the sudden, even as his team is losing.

No excuse in the world why the Heat shouldn't have swept the Mavs. If Lebron played like 85% King James that we know him to be, this series would be over. He didn't even have to be full 100% King, just 85%, maybe 70% would get them by.

But he's playing like a cupcake now offensively. This is deeper than basketball. There's something going on

maybe, only if my family was threatened

But for extra money? Probably not. I should be making enough as an athlete, and then theres the threat of being exposed ala Donaghy.
