RUSSELL WESTBROOK

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s future depends on whether Russell Westbrook can make some changes in his offensive game. AP file

After an outstanding letter regarding abortion ("Only wealthy white women will be granted rights of choice," May 31) and a column about the National Spelling Bee giving substantial perks to the wealthy ("Helaine Olen: Now you can pay to play at the National Spelling Bee," June 2), I found out the week-long Russell Westbrook basketball camp  costs $350, on the high side of other week-long area day camps for children.

Silly me! I thought these successful and wealthy powers of the court and field ran these camps as charities.

How much more money does Russell yield from his camps? Could his parents have afforded to pay such a fee for him?
