If they were only getting 54 instead of 57 this cba would have been easier to negotiate. The teams would be way better off. So really the only mistake of the last cba was including that escalator to the players for revenue growth. Before the last cba teams were losing around 225mil as a collective. Now they are on the +side about 120-200mil.
