this is kind of a misconception everyone tosses out.

in reality the money from playoffs is considered hrr. it gets split according to the cba to both owners and players

even though the players technically have no individual benefit from the playoffs... as a collective union they do get their share of playoff money. it makes up the short fall that the regular season doesnt cover.. and if theres extra then it gets handed out too.
