NBA Plea for Help

Tim & Andy’s NBA Plea for Help

With the Christmas season approaching, please look into your heart to help those in need.

Hundreds of National Basketball Association basketball players in our very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure salary level. And, as if that weren’t bad enough, they will be deprived of pay for several weeks–possibly a whole year–as a result of the current lock-out situation. But now, you can help!

For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day, less than the cost of a large screen projection TV, you can help a basketball player remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem, as it barely covers the yearly league minimum, but it’s a start.

Almost $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, but to a basketball player it could mean the difference between a vacation spent golfing in Florida or a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than two months rent or mortgage payments. But to a basketball player, $700 will almost replace his daily salary.

Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

How will you know you are helping?

Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home.

How will he know I’m helping?

Your basketball player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the player won’t know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home twice a month just in case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.

Please call 1-900-TOO-MUCH. For an extra $50, you’ll receive a magnetized of the player you sponsor that you can slap up on your refrigerator.

That’s 1-900-TOO-MUCH. Thank you.
