It was not a fixed value, it was set to 4.5% of HRR. And actually could go higher or lower then that amount based on a lot of formulas.

My understanding is that the sharing proposals being tossed about during the current CBA negotiations are also %'s of HRR, though just about every media report just says how much the sharing amount would have been if there were a full 2012-2013 season.
