I've come out on the owners' side through most of this but I generally say it's cause it's what is good for the game.

On the cap issue, I have to side with the players.

There is no way you can impose an immediate $60m hard cap with no room for maneuvering. Even if you had an NBA system where you imposed that $60 million cap right away, but teams could exceed it if they paid a luxury tax, that could work (though for the record, I'm against the luxury tax system in general, just saying that would work better than an immediate drop to a hard $60m cap).

It's simply not fair to the teams who were trying to build a winning product to pull the rug out from under their feet.
