Now I've heard everything!
NBA player Ron Artest has been benched for asking to take a month off to rest and recuperate after promoting his rap album. The poor baby needs time to recover from the rigors of his busy schedule before continuing on with his NBA career.
Here's a thought: Try getting a real job where you're expected to show up at least five days a week for 50 weeks out of the year. And you won't be paid millions of dollars either!
It's stories like this that make me question why I follow professional sports.
