Oh please, the players don't care one bit about future generations, else they wouldn't have made the offers they made.

Beyond that, the percentage of revenue players get is largely irrelevant to future generations, as long as the actual numbers go up. 50% of 4 billion is still more than 57% of 3.3. So a "worse" deal doesn't really have to actually be worse. The last CBA was far from bad for the players, on the contrary, they couldn't have asked for a much better one, and that was rather obvious from the get go.
