Judge to NBA Owner:

Your Nanny

DESERVED to be Fired!!

owner Herb Simon and his Miss Universe wife were totally right to fire two of the most UNGRATEFUL employees on the planet ... so says an L.A. judge.

Simon just scored a huge victory over his former nanny and his former driver -- who both accused the NBA owner and his wife Bui of treating them like crap and cheating them out of a TON of cash. 

Today, the court tentatively found that the Simons were not only in the right -- but the judge implied they are the most GENEROUS bosses ever ... who showered their former nanny with gifts like diamonds, iPods, Prada sandals, cash and even a MERCEDES ... out of the goodness of their hearts.

The accusations against the Simons were ridiculous -- with the nanny claiming the couple tried to embarrass her when they hosted a dinner at a fancy restaurant and failed to propose a toast to her pregnancy ... and ultimately fired her for being knocked up. The judge didn't buy her story one bit.

As for the driver -- the judge noted that he constantly fell asleep in court ... and was hardly believable as a witness.  The judge also noted how WELL he was treated by the Simons ... who also got a bunch of gifts as well as a $7,500 bonus so he could buy a new car.

Bottom line -- next time the Simons are hiring ... APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!!

Wow, I would be so grateful for amazing boss's like that. But I guess the old saying is true. Give a mouse a cookie, he will want a glass of milk.

And people wonder why the rich in general don't let the wealth trickle down more often. I know there are very greedy, rich people out there who, despite their wealth, feel they can never have enough. But more often than not, most people in the employ of rich people feel they're entitled to get from them more than just their salary. I bet he won't be as generous to the next person he hires.

Employees never appreciate the perks they are given. If they are given something, they expect it from then on. We had a really profitable year one year, and decided to give our employees a percentage of the profits, as a thank you for their hard work. They were very appreciative and thankful, but when the next year rolled around and there was a downturn, we became jerks because they said there was now an expectation to get "at least" what they got the year before, if not more. They were never told this was going to happen every year. It was clearly explained to them that this was a one-time deal for them, but once it was done one time, we were huge jerks the next year when we were in the red. That was our problem, not theirs. This is what we heard, I kid you not.
