So you have an agenda in that you don't like Chris Paul.

I don't like any number of celebrities or entertainers. But I understand that if they can sell tickets and put meat in the seats; if other employers within the marketplace value their services; if advertisers crave their endorsement abilities; if they enhance the value of the product as a whole; they deserve to make as much money as they can possibly command, or they should move on to someone else willing to pay them that.

And your notion that $3 million dollars is enough to "survive your whole life" is the same misguided thinking that leads many athletes, entertainers, lottery winners etc to end up broke.
