Odell Beckham Jr. appeared on HBO's "The Shop" with LeBron James, saying he feels like a zoo animal when interacting with fans who expect him to dance or take a picture on command. Many athletes have echoed this complaint and feel people don't respect their time or space enough. Still, fame and getting paid millions of dollars comes at a price and they should expect a change in how people interact with them. What do you think?

How do you feel about Odell Beckham Jr. making this statement?

Athletes are good at what they do and they make millions of dollars. They still deserve to be treated like human beings and not an animal for fans' entertainment. 

People bother athletes at inconvenient times and still have the audacity to complain about a simple, "No, sorry." Check your entitlement and respect athletes more.

Fans pay for players' contracts. Athletes owe it to the fans to take pictures and sign autographs. That's not too much to ask considering how much these people make. 

Fans are mostly respectful anyway when they ask for a little memento. It just comes with the territory.
