I don't believe it ever uses the term. It's more implied in the method in which it is all calculated.
In the simplest terms, without trying to write a book:
It has to do with the cap being calculated daily. There is a "daily limit" that is a soft cap. It is merely an average. You are technically allowed to exceed it.
So if the daily limit is 100k (making up numbers). And every day for the first half of the season you are 10k under. You can then go 10k OVER, everyday for the second half of the season. This is why people say you "bank" that space.
This is where contract "proration" comes into affect. And this is why if you are using LTIR, you are never "banking" because you are already over.
First off all, you can place a player with a 35+ contract on LTIR and receive the exemption. So while technically the Cap hit doesn't disapear, you can use the exemption to replace the player if it puts you over the limit.
And you have the bank space part wrong. You can't over the Upper limit for the second half of the Season just because you banked cap space in the first half of the Season. And it's not how proration comes into affect. The only time a team can go over the Upper Limit, is with the LTIR exemption
