CRAZY IDEA

I have to come clean..I'm a Spurs fan. Having said that, I think this applies across the board, especially as most of the teams are drafting guys with unpronouncable names from other countries.

We've suffered some, especially lately, from our players playing for their Country, only to come hobbling back to the Spurs, almost useless for quite some time. BTW, this also applies to US players. Coaches, owners and fans are all frustrated and upset. Do you realize what some of those salaries could do for the Budget of the US?

Here's my suggestion (only slightly tongue in cheek): Any player who plays for their country and comes back, beat up, exhausted or just not in the mood to put out at 100%, could take the year off. The would NOT receive a pay check but their team would retain their rights for one additional year over their current contract. I would hope that most of these guys have some savings or their wives could work or they could do color commentary. BUT, they could not play basketball for ANYBODY during that year.

Any comments?!?!?
