Reportedly, revenue sharing is 200 million dollars with a 60 million dollar growth fund, whatever that is. 60 million dollars is about 15% of last year's revenue. I'm assuming the 200 million dollars is just the TV contract. 15% is probably half of what we'd need to ensure there aren't cancelled games at the end of this CBA. Realistically, it's even less than half.

Going by assumptions and mental math...that's not enough. If the league has more explosive growth and the cap rises too fast, we will end up in the same situation where teams are losing money trying to keep up. We'll probably have another lockout.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
