Default Most important Reason for Playing Pro Ball

Money? Status? Fun/Passion? To be the Best? To touch other's lives? *****es?
What say you ISH?

Getting paid to do what you love.

Or in special cases (such as Bynum), getting paid to do something you're good at but don't really want to do.

For most guys it's a combination of all of them, and the distribution varies by personality. For guys like JR Smith it's probably something like 40% money, 40% crack, 15% crack and money, and 5% basketball. For guys like 20Four, it's 60% tiny dick compensation and 40% touching (the lives of) little boys across the country.
