The Tallest Guys in the Unemployment Line

An interesting tidbit coming out of the NBA lockout. Will the locked out NBA players be able to file for unemployment checks? If so, will they get them?

I can see the scene now....

NBA player: Uh, yeah, I'm here to sign up for unemployment.
Unemployment office worker: How long have you been out of work sir?
NBA player: Since June.
Unemployment office worker: How much were you making in your previous job?
NBA player: $18 million a year.
Unemployment office worker: Have you been actively seeking employment in the last six weeks?
NBA player: Uh, I did apply at the Burger Barn but the manager said I was overqualified.

And then there is this offer from KFC.
