Farewell, NBA


Hey, Paul,

You touch on an idea that we were disussing here once before. Our discussion centered around this. If profit sharing is demanded to be part of the equation, how is risk sharing also going to be factored in? Taking the idea that players get people into the seats concept, if a player doesn't pan out and doesn't bring "wow", can he be docked pay? Or would it be a pure profit sharing where all the players would get a cut of the generic sharing?

I think both sides make me roll my eyes, personally. And given the detracting aspect of professional sports (surrounding sports), I've watched NBA less and less. But it does make for good conversational fodder!
