OKC lady can't sue b/c you can't have a legal contract to begin with. Anybody still gonna be making donations?
And end up being crippled? Or fearing for his life everyday? Who wants to go against someone who donate $100 million?

Me too. It was only $5 (plus postage), but that will go towards maintaining his beautiful physique (maybe a shave/new pair of specs etc) and makes me feel good about myself for contributing to a man that provides me with a lot of entertainment. He can't return it because I didn't put a RTS address.

For great looks? Sure. For basketball reasons? Short time it may be worth it, especially for a role player. But for a franchise player and long time commitment? I doubt it.

LMAO @ sue.

Lol if you're going to threaten someone who takes $100 million that you gave them as a gift because they leave your team. Then why don't you just physically threaten them to begin with? No need to waste time giving them $100 million.

Furthermore, nobody would actually do this because no rich person actually cares that much about one player simply staying on a team - not even guaranteeing a championship or anything, but just staying on a team. You're better off paying Stern or refs to rig the league for your team.
