The players had a CBA rammed down their gullets, and it was 54% of HRR at the beginning. It only increased as revenue increased. The league wanted this certainty. They defined revenue (HRR), got a 24% rollback from contracts already on the books, and the 54% starting point.

So, yes, the league did get everything they wanted.
