It is effectively revenue sharing, money that would otherwise go to elite players goes to scrubs, etc, alternatively, the performance of the best players guarantees a fair living for the rest.

A good analogy is how national TV contracts are split 30 ways. I.e. revenue comes in and is split in a Mon free market manner.
