Nets Hire Staff To Protect Player Interests

Professional sports are no stranger to shadiness. Plaxico Burress, Pacman Jones, the Metta World Peace formerly known as Ron Artest, and more are known to get into some sticky situations, compromising the interests of player and team. However, the Nets are working towards helping players understand risks and assist in avoiding shoot-yourself-in-the-foot situations.

The Nets have hired a chef to make sure that players eat healthy, a psychologist who will talk to players with struggling confidence (Outlaw), hectic personal lives (Humphries), etc., and a service that will prevent players from going astray by warning them of bad influences. This service, called Players Protect (creative, I know), does investigations on potential nightclubs that players plan on partying at, and provides safe drivers & undercover bodyguards.

Such are the benefits of having the most opulent owner in the league.
