It's still a nice thing to do to donate to other people but it's their money and they worked their ass off to get to the NBA.


worked hard? no more like they were "entitled to it" because they were born with natural ability. therefore they shoud donate

edit:typo

that is what the NBA players do. they set up foundations under their name, like the Tim Duncan Foundation, or the Shaquille O'Neal Foundation and all the money they would normally pay in taxes, they give to their non-profit foundation which has a board of directors. the board decides where the money goes. usually the head of the board is the wife of the player. if the wife is smart they usually find really good organizations to donate money to.

if your city has long term players they have a foundation in their name. ill say about 40-50% of NBA players have a foundation. i know in san antonio, tim duncan, bruce bowen, brent barry, manu ginobili, and tony parker all have foundations which put together charity events like bruces fitness walk, and tim duncans charity golf classic.

People that donate definitely deserves respect, but at the same time, it's unfair for people to bash others for not donating.

if they're making that much money i almost see it as an obligation to donate, to help others who are in trouble, and my other one that i forgot to include in all this was guys like donald trump, donating millions would be peanuts for that guy

What was the last time you donated? People act like they have to give out money because they make a lot even though they themselves would just brush off a homeless guy asking for a quarter.

A guy that makes $15 mil is suppose to donate $1 mil
That would mean a guy who makes $50,000 should donate $3,333.
