“Danny Granger, along with every other NBA player, isn’t getting paid during the lockout.

That’s not stopping Granger from sharing some of the near $11 million he made last season with some of the unfortunate Conseco Fieldhouse workers who aren’t getting paid because of the lockout.

Granger is the process of trying to arrange a dinner with the fieldhouse employees who are impacted financially because of the lockout. He also wants to put together a charity game where the proceeds can go to the workers.

Paul George, Brandon Rush, James Posey and Dahntay Jones want to help their teammate with the event, too.

People like the concession workers, stat people and ushers get paid by the game.

There have already been three preseason and three home games cancelled because of the lockout.

You’ve got to commend those players for trying to put something together because the perception around the country is that the billionaire owners and millionaire players are nothing but greedy.”
