Stephen Curry, Other NBA Stars Set To Lose A Lot Of Money
10/31/2020, 1:31:30 PM · 49 of 58

Grampa Dave to forgotten man
Thanks for posting this tax loss reality.

“The good news is that the State of California Franchise Tax Board is losing tens of millions of dollars in income taxes from Curry and LeBron James alone.”

Oakland and the State of California Franchise Tax Board took a big hit when the Oakland thugs aka Raiders moved to Vegas.

Now, their basketball thugs will not be paying as much Califonicator Income tax.

MLB was basically a total loss for everyone involved. The bay area has the former Giants and the Oakland A’s.

The loss of seasonal ticket sales for all of these Bay area pro thugs has to be in the millions.

Thanks, again, I had not really thought of the loss of tax’s for California and probably the host cities when the thugs take massive paycuts!

I want them to go full throttle on the social justice stuff.

I also hope no one ever goes back to watching or caring about anything “pro-sports,” in general.

It’s too bad that my city doesn’t have an NBA team to boycott.

It’s time for a market correction. You just cannot keep paying all these sportsball jocks hundreds of millions of dollars and then think the money from the fans will always flow to keep up with it.

A good hard crash once in awhile will bring them back to reality.

Glad to hear their contracts aren’t fixed but are tied to overall league revenue, which is cratering.

Shut up and dribble. Or whatever.

But, LeBron says it’s ‘racist’ for the right wings to enjoy his misfortune. Except that, no, it’s not at all ‘racist’.
It’s human nature to take pleasure in seeing a big mouth forced to shut up and re-evaluate the game plan of shoving BLM down our throats.

Maybe people will go back to the novel idea of making your own fun. Having friends over for game / card nights. Playing sports yourself. Having dinner parties , etc.

I do think it would be hilarious if those ungrateful bums lost their jobs or took huge cuts because of their nasty arrogant attitudes.
