NBA PLAYER ADOPTION PROGRAM NEEDS YOU!
With an NBA player's strike against the team owners looming,
now is the time for us to show the world just how much we
care. It's just not right. Hundreds of basketball players
in our very own country are living at or just below the
seven-figure salary level! Atrocious! 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 strike. But now you can
help! For about two thousand dollars a day--that's less
than the cost of a large screen projection TV--you can help
a basketball player remain economically viable during his
time of need.
Two thousand dollars a day 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, two thousand dollars is nothing more than
three months rent or mortgage payments. But to a basketball
player, two thousand dollars a day will almost replace his
Your commitment of two thousand dollars 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
"HOW WILL I KNOW I'M 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. You'll also get information
on how he plans to invest the $5 million lump sum he will
receive upon retirement. Plus upon signing up for this program,
you will receive a photo of the player (unsigned). Put the
photo on your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples'
"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 via a special operator just in
case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.
