Persuasive StoriesPaying College AthletesIf the colleges are going to pay their athletes, the pay shouldn't go over $50,000.I think some athletes might end up getting used to the real world if they had to manage large sums of money, to pay for their cars, college, and even a house.

It also helps make friends and it goes on your record if you signed fast or wanted more money or just took along time. Some teams look at how a person signed with the last team to kind of get an idea of what to expect. When the Bulls signed Dennis Rodman, the coach, Rodman went over to Phil Jackson's house for two days.

If I got paid to play college basketball I don't think I would want that much unless something like my parents were having or I really needed it. I would play for the minimum wage if there was one.

Overall I really think it matters, who you are and what you want. It only depends on the person ; if it is a good idea or not.
