Tonight, the 2010 NBA All-Star Game takes place. And yet again, I couldn’t really care less about it. That said, I have a few questions to which I don’t know the answers, but think it’s worth discussing:
I Love This Game
How many kids from different mothers do you think the average player in tonight’s game has? Hey, if they’re telling us they’re role models (and if they have endorsement deals–which they all do–that is what they’re telling us, if in not so many words), I’d like to know how many of ‘em are babydaddies and by how many different babymamas. I’d guess, on average, it’s about four kids with three different babymamas per player. I don’t know for sure, and haven’t done the tally, but I’ll bet I’m close. I only looked at two of the players–Jason Kidd (who has two kids by a wife and one by a girlfriend) and LeBron James (who has two kids by a girlfriend).
How many do you think owe child support on their various illegitimate offspring? And what is the total balloon figure owed in child support by all of the players in tonight’s game? Again, I don’t know the answer, but I’ll be it’s in the tens of thousands and that at least five owe support.
Yup, I couldn’t care less about who scores the most points, tonight. And I won’t be watching. But what I do care about–what we should all care about–is how many messed up kids with no fathers in their lives the guys playing tonight created or will create in the future. It’s no small blight on America.
