Introduction:


First of all, I would like to thank (michigainman56) for creating this debate in the first place. I look forward to how it will play out.


Arguments:


NBA players are paid an average of 5.15 million dollars in salary (1) to do something that they already love to do, and, if they really cared about the sport, would happily do for free. While the President of the United States gets paid 400,000 dollars (2) to do the most difficult, important, and stressful job on the planet.


So to put that in perspective; someone who would happily do their job for free is getting paid 5.15 million dollars a year, while arguably the most important man on earth is getting paid 1/13th of that.


Conclusion:


I look forward to my opponent’s response, thank you!
