@WallyWorld @ParmB Let me kill the fun even more.  


Guy that makes 40K probably pays taxes, daycare, sometimes alimony/child-support, extra interest in terms of mortgage/car payments, etc that really dwindles his net take home to close to zero.

Taking $20 from someone in that position can be pretty cruel.  And dude making $40K working as a mechanic is probably too tired to make any money from a second job (and it's not like he's getting endorsement money).

As if that's not enough, he has to pay for strippers/hookers/etc while the NBA guys have to ward off groupies.

You're not accounting for taxation.

CP3s actual income is probably closer to 10-12M a year (let's exclude endorsements as they can be handled through other business names).

 If the fine is tax deductible, it is probably close to your "estimate" but if it isn't it's more like a $21 hit (not like it changes the analogy much).
