THE 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 salary.

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 in Rio.

"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' suffering.


"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.

Simply fill out the form below.

On a sad note, I'm surprised the NBA players haven't thought of actually doing this..bunch of money hungry millionaires.
