Have you ever wondered why National Basketball Association owners pay a 21 year-old college student twenty million dollars to play professional basketball? James Mitchum IV, owner of the Houston Tornadoes, wondered about that very same thing. While sitting in his office, he knew that a plan needed to be devised to change the system. Why is he cutting a check to a guy who hasn’t even played a game? Why is he paying a player for potential? What if that player doesn’t live up to that potential, can he get his money back? The answer to his dilemma is buried somewhere between the pages of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. After reading that document from stem to stern, he finds his answer, and he devises a plan to change the pay structure for the NBA players. The players won’t like it, but so what?

Reader Reviews for "Collective Bargaining (Taking control away from the players)"

Reviewed by Chris Wright 1/27/2009
Hmmm I been wondering how athletes and rappers can get paid more than I do in the span of my lifetime too. Maybe I chose the wrong occupation, LOL! But I can do without the Bengay and bending my mind for lyrics to entertain. I think its interesting how much our society is still linked to Roman culture. How we are a mob too that loves to be entertained rather than educated. Perhaps that's our downfall we should be playing less Soccer and reading more Socrates but then we'd rish another period of Enlightenment. Imagine That! Your book sounds interesting and good luck and enjoy your golden brown years of retirement! Take Care & Have A Ghetto Fabulous Day Sista Wilken!
