Slight adjustment........

How about kicking in the luxury tax at 40mil, making the minimum payroll 33-35mil and having the players agree that provided the owners follow the cba, they won't sue the league for collusion damages if salaries don't grow as fast as they'd like?
A collusion lawsuit could force minimum salaries way up, making the cba, in effect, a reverse salary cap. The owners cant really use a hard cap because of the minor league system. If the players don't trust them now, imagine if the owners had that toy to play with! Plus if the tax kicks in at a higher level, it could be made a little more severe, slowing down,but not stopping salary growth
