The 5-year deal limit is a huge thing for the players, and I can completely understand that. People just see "zomg they are so well paid" but it's really about having power and leverage in how you negotiate future contracts.

Unions this and unions that. Imagine of you were one of the best in your field in the world, say computer engineering, and there were limits to what Google could pay you if they hired you, because all owners in the computer business had made some deal about a salary cap. That's just as "bad" and regulated as unions dictating things.
