Dishonorable Mention

Marcus Camby and Allen Iverson:

Camby wants stipend for dress code
With NBA commissioner David Stern set to implement of a dress code, some players are finding fault with the possible change. Denver Nuggets center Marcus Camby, who is in the midst of a $45 million contract, thinks the players should have additional compensation. "I don't see it happening unless every NBA player is given a stipend to buy clothes," Camby told WOAI.
Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson has been a vocal critic of the proposed change. "It sends a bad message to kids," Iverson told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "If you don't have a suit when you go to school, is your teacher going to think you're a bad kid because you don't have a suit

Marcus - forgo your daily dime bag and before long you will be able to afford a pair of pants and a collared shirt.
Allen - thank you for monitoring the messages athletes send our children. I can think of no better role model for America's youth than you.
