I'm not just talking about greed but futility also. If I'm in a busted elevator with Shaq and he says give me all your money or I'll punch you in the head for every dollar I find on you, I can either cough it up or let him take it slowly and take shots to the head. Either way he's getting it, one way hurts me more. Only difference is I won't be getting rich.

And that's pretty insulting to be confronted with. As I was saying, it goes beyond the possibility of a paycut.
