Today started the NBA lock out. Raja Bell was quick to Tweet stating “were not going to crack” in regards to the lock out. Im sure Im not the only Jazz fan that would hope to never see him in a Jazz Jersey again. Lets take a look at Raja’s pay for the 2010/2011 season which is $3,000,000. He played 2097 minutes which shows that he made $1,430.62 A MINUTE!! Or we can look at the shot attempts Raja took last year… 467 shot attempts… he was paid $6424 for every time he threw up a shot and people like me watching just winched when time after time he hit everything but the bottom of the net. Mr. Bell thinks he needs to make MORE money? does this even make sense!
Lets see the real losers in all of this business. How many people work at a basketball game that aren’t a player or management? probably hundreds a stadium? so thousands upon thousands across the USA? they make peanuts at these games but most HAVE to to supplement their income. They don’t lock out with their bosses… they are just happy to have a job most of them. Think about the families all across america that might struggle that much more. Just so Raja can make more and more a minute..
Get the bum out of here. Im serious. No Jazz fan should put up with this
