Or targets because they wear 80k worth of jewelry to dance clubs or get robbed with 75k cash in their lap? Stupidity transcends all strata of society, some people make good decisions, others do not.
Lebron is on record as saying he doesn't own a gun, you mean to tell me that there is a bigger "target" than LBJ? LeBron makes solid decisions, he doesn't go to night clubs and put himself in situations where he could become a target. Arenas is a dumbass and so is every other idiot that has that kind of money and puts themselves in unnecessarily retarded situations.
Yes they are targets WHEREVER they go. Home invasions happened to NBA players and NFL players. Were they wearing they're 80k worth of jewelry then? I doubt it. There are haters everywhere and crazy haters will go that extra mile to get what you got. A celebrity would be dumb to not want to protect themselves...be it bodyguards or being strapped.
It doesn't matter if you have a million dollars in your pockets, you don't deserve to be robbed. That's BS...how is trying to be a normal person a bad decision? Going to the club in your early 20s shouldn't have to stop because you make money. They shouldn't be criticized for wanting to be normal...the haters and criminals should be criticized.
LeBron is LeBron...you can't expect all athletes to stay in the house because LeBron does. LeBron isn't the type to go out and have fun...he's a family man now so it would be dumb for him to go out. Most young athletes don't have a fam so staying in the house to play the Wii with your homeboy is out of the question.
Millionaire or Hundredaire, it doesn't matter IMO. Nobody deserves to be robbed.
