    Rep. Peter King of NY thinks Chris Morris deserves better.

    Lucky for Morris that his agent's nephew works for Congressman King.

    Dear Congressman King:
    STFU and GBTW. Economy, jobs, health care, national security. These are the things you're there to be taking care of at this point in time, sir.
    — Yours truly, etc.,
    The American taxpayer

    From a big picture standpoint, he's got a point. I'm sure this problem isn't unique to NBA players in Europe. I would imagine that this can - and does - happen to Americans working in other professions outside the U.S.

    However, there's no way in hell King would be taking up this crusade if the agent's nephew wasn't on his payroll.

    He's got no point. Because the NBA plays these guys in an exhibition, the league should be held responsible? Uh-uh. If the player (or other worker) is owed money by the club, take it to court. You don't get your Congressman to go on a witch hunt that, if taken up, will waste legislative time and money.

    Well yeah, that part is a steaming pile of horseshit from the get-go.
