3 Finals games + 6 other home playoff games. Revenue for those has to easily be in the $40M range. That's what, 2/3 of their payroll costs for the entire year right there? This is all above and beyond all of their other revenues for the entire year.

Like I said, NFW they lost money this year.

I'd like to add on to this.

C. Kings do not get all the revenue from playoff games, infact I think playoff revenues are what fund revenue sharing.
D. Players get a playoffs share on top of regular salary.
E. You still have expenses during playoffs its not all straight revenues.
F. Merch not bought at team LA is shared throughout the league.
