    Default The Kansas City Royals Model

    I was twiddling over the numbers of the guys that we have been signing, and wondered if they are really worth it, in a business model sense.

    Do you think these guys really will return 100M+ on their contract investment? Or should the Pacers take on the KC Royals position, where their payroll is far below everyone else? The team would be awful, but it would be profitable.

    As a fan, you obviously want to see the team try to win a championship, but at this point, with how the NBA is structured, I really, honestly do not see us having a chance at a title. Boston started this three headed monster thing, and every big market team has tried to duplicate that.

    So is being a 3rd-5th seed in the playoffs with 2nd, maybe Conf Finals exits enough? Is it enough to fill the seats, and keep them filled? And keep them filled enough to sell enough drinks and t-shirts to make a profit? Or would it make more sense business wise to dump salary and become profitable, keeping the team in the city?
