athletes are payed more based on the fact of our free enterprise economy. we pay higher prices for things high in demand and low in supply. therefore according to that logic, why should teachers, doctors, and other jobs with degrees be paid more? should we violate our government in order to make a few middle class people happy. if one thing must be certain, it is that people spend money on what they need and want. although the need for education is there... the want for an nba postseason game or attire endorsed by MJ is a much greater asset. also, it is much harder to become a professional athlete than a teacher. i leave on this note... 40,000 people each year in the united states earn a ph.d while only 40 rookies make it to the nba.
