No.

Before the CBA, their share was at around 72%. That is where the player share of revenue goes in a free market system with no salary cap. The salary cap lowered the share to 54%. The CBA had an agreement that if revenue growth exceeded all expectations to a point where everybody would win, the players would get one sixth of their concessions back: player share would go to 57%.

It's still a net drop.
