Salary bump

The next time you’re contemplating going in to ask your boss for a raise, consider the following: If you walked into his office demanding $100,000 a year, under his new contract Shaq will make that much in about a week.
By my estimate, Shaqullie O’Neal’s $100,000,000 5-year contract gets him over $2,200 an hour whether he’s on the courts or not. That should pay for more than a few pairs of size 22 Nikes.*
But then, he doesn’t actually pay for those, does he?
*Nike owns Starter, Shaq’s official shoe brand.
