The first thing that stood out to me in that report is that it's over a 14 year period of time and is seemingly a paltry amount of money profited during that period. What it doesnt show you is how much was profit and loss season by season. They couldve earned more profits when the salary cap/floor was more manageable but might be losing money more recently as the floor has grown to the level the original cap was when the first CBA was signed.
I am of the belief that an owner due to them fronting the money, and assuming the risks should be entitled to greater rewards. That being said, there are a few players (employees) who make more than this owner per year if you want to average that profit out per year.
I don't know, I need to see more data and I am especially curious of the break down each year. Also whether the owner counts himself as an employee and cuts himself a salary which is factored into that as a running cost.
