According to Rich Exner's salary gizmo on the Cleveland Plain Dealer's website, if you make $75,000 a year, you'd have to work for 378.81 years straight to make as much as LeBron James makes, with endorsements, in one season. So, you know, keep taking your vitamins. The thing lets you plug in any salary, and compare it to any Cavaliers player. Of course, thinking like this is ridiculous -- when you are beyond having life's basics, it is all pretty much relative. There are people in the developing world who would have to work for 378.81 years to make as much as the poor among us lucky people surfing the internet make now. People with things like roofs, food, heat, cars, health care, peace and the like are all rich, by the most important standards. But that doesn't mean NBA players don't make a hell of a lot of money.

Henry Abbott on the difference between being rich, and being wealthy.
