Here Charles Barkley talks about the ongoing NBA lockout situation. While I do understand both side, I tend to agree with the NBA, David Stern, Charles Barkley, Michael Jordan and the rest of the owners. Take a look at the condition of this country today and these NBA players seem to be crying broke and want more money. The average NBA player earns 5.5 million dollars a year while the average American citizen earns 23 thousand dollars a year. If you divide 5.5 million earnings average of one NBA player to the 23 thousand dollar average of the average Americans citizen you will get 239. Yes, the average NBA player earns what 239 average Americans earn and they are crying for more money, give me a break.
Both sides are ridiculous. They are all filthy rich and they just want more. I understand the players play the game and provide the talent but the players are already overpaid as it is. It is selfish on the players part. Think about all the people that work in the stadiums that dont have jobs right now. Lets see what happens.
