Call me "old school"
"he refused to renegotiate with Pippen during the years Pippen was severely underpaid"
ONE day, this sort of mentality towards salaries is gonna have to change.....maybe its too late.
this is CERTAINLY part of what is wrong with professional sports today. What would happen if we, as workers, after having agreed upon a salary from OUR employers, decided one day, we felt we were not getting what we really should be getting, in our minds???
go in friday morning and say..."Okay boss, I know I agreed to work for $15 per hour, but I feel I am worth more than that now, especially when this other government agency is paying their workers $20 an hour. Unless you equal my salary to that, I am walking out!"
Do U know what your bosses' response would be?..yeah.."Don't let the door hit you in the *** on the way out!"...and in the same sentence, "get me personnel and a new body in here." IF WE or ANYONE in life agree to a specified salary, then, we and ANYONE else, should live up to THAT agreement and then when that contract is up, THEN re-negotiate.
Unless the NBA along with every other major sport wants to have the same immediate future of major league baseball, they better quit cawdling these thugs most people call professional basketball players...good example?.......IVERSON! granted this is an EXTREME example, but for the most part, you get what I mean, right?
another way to look at this whole scenario is...whose team is it? whoever has the booty gets to make the rules, right?:yes:
Kerr, louie and scottvdub...I think we are in agreement.
