As far as being among the owners wanting to decrease the player share, anyone ever think that:

A) He cares about the health of the league on a whole. Remember, he's in business with 29 other owners, he can't just be thinking about what's best for him

B) A cap that's more affordable for more teams could mean less revenue sharing that the Hawks need to pay into, which means more money that he can be put into scouting, development, etc.
