Now i know a lot of it is Wang is cheap, but is this a chicken/egg scenario? Lets say Wang splashed out and the Isles were really competitive and in the playoffs perennially. Would the Isles be any more financially well off? With the current state of the SMG lease and cable bill would you say that if the team was doing better the tram could probably have a mid team budget?
I don't think it's one particular thing, but more like a few things that constantly feed off each other to make matters increasingly worse. Hopefully, the announcemnt and eventual move to Brooklyn takes one of these factors out of the equation and begins to alleviate the problem.
