Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
why doesn't the nba reduce the number of games per season? i can only see good things for the owners, players and fans if that were implemented.
Here is an interesting article from Hoopshype. One man's view on when the season probably will start. One of the more optimistic views.
Read today an "anonymous owner" says there's a handful of owners that want player endorsement money to be included in the "Basketball Related Income" because without the NBA the players wouldn't get any endorsements. Good luck with that.
Whatever the percentage is the players would be paying into the BRI money they don't pay any into right now. It's not going to happen anyway, I don't even know if something like that'd be legal.
Here's a link.
The source said owners frequently speak of "being tired of making these guys rich" and are even contemplating asking for more, such as including income the players receive from their commercial endorsements and sponsorship money into the BRI pot -- the theory being the players wouldn't become famous and able to make such deals if not for the NBA infrastructure that puts them on television and other media.
