In fact, two years ago I suggested LeBron James should do something like that. I'll never understand why pro athletes aren't more inclined to take a little less money if it improves other variables relating to their place of employment. Jon Lester described it perfectly in the summer of 2014, but then his actions failed to live up to his words four months later.
On the other hand, all of these recent LeBron statements (or lack thereof) do irritate me:

In case you didn't understand LeBron's recent tweets, he wants you to know they're "for the educated mind." pic.twitter.com/2mGftjpjbq— Mark Vandeusen (@LucidSportsFan) March 8, 2016
