    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    If you want the model of how to win without spending like Mark Cuban, you look at the Bulls. Even during the Jordan era owner Jerry Reinsdorf was a guy who won as cheaply as he could. He does not like to pay the luxury tax. Right now, the Bulls are doing that again —…

    Representatives of the NBA owners and players have sat in the same room with federal mediator George Cohen for more than 24 hours over two days. That will have to do for progress; the two sides do not have a deal yet. But while there was no breakthrough, there was some progress on the key…

    The NBA’s luxury tax is at the heart of why there will be no games the first two weeks of what should have been the NBA season. The owners say a stiffer luxury tax is needed to provide competitive balance in the league (to help the Kings compete with the Lakers). The players say that…
