Not All Pro Athletes are T.O.

In an era when it seems that all professional athletes care about is themselves, this story about Milwaukee Bucks star Michael Redd is a refreshing break from the ordinary.

You see, while most athletes spend their millions on fur coats, fancy cars, and bling-bling, Michael Redd decided to do something a little bit different. After signing a six-year $91-million deal this summer, Redd bought his father, who is a pastor in Columbus, Ohio, a new church. Yep, you read that right.

Says Michael:
The Lord, he gave me life. What I did was to give it right back to Him. That's the least I could do, is buy a church. The very least I could do.

The article also says that Michael has tithed regularly since entering the NBA. I'm sure you guys can figure out what 10% of $91 million is. You can't help but be encouraged by a story like that.

The NBA has a dress code?! The NBA has nice guys like Michael Redd?! Larry Brown can not win to save his life?! What is the world coming to?! My chances of watching an NBA game this season just doubled! What's 0 X 2?
