    Lost in the madness that was Thurday’s breakdown in CBA negotiations and the subsequent tommy-gunning by the union was the fact that the Board of Governors received those proposals on revenue sharing Thursday. Sometime in between evening coffee and deciding to let Paul freaking Allen and Dan freaking Gilbert be their representatives to the union…

    We’ve known there are rifts inside the NBA labor strife on both sides for a while. Agents are plotting against Billy Hunter while smiling at him over video conferences. Owners are meeting furiously among themselves due to disagreements on how things should be handled. But after Saturday’s up and down news (“There’s progress but not…

    Since the beginning of the NBA lockout, revenue sharing has been a huge issue. When you have an entity locking out its employees, and you have a massive disparity between the rich contingents and the poor contingents within that entity, naturally the employees are going to ask “Why don’t you just redistribute some of that…

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    In negotiations that have had a lot of sticking points — percentage of Basketball Related Income (BRI), hard cap — one of the other big ones has been revenue sharing.

    Paul Allen

    For some context, Portland Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen is worth $13 billion dollars according to Forbes. That would make him the 21st richest man in the United States. Which is the kind of money you get when you are one of the founders of Microsoft. Put it this way: When it was time to…

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Every time — I mean every time — NBA Commissioner David Stern says publically now it is about the collective bargaining agreement negotiations.

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    David Stern says the league needs more of it. Small market teams say it is essential to maintain a competitive league. But at the end of the day, “increased revenue sharing” means being Robin Hood, taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Corporate socialism. The kind of things the rich big market teams…

    Aug 2, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    We at PBT, along with most of the basketball world, have applauded what the Jazz did this offseason. They lost Carlos Boozer, but in Al Jefferson found a good replacement. They added Raja Bell.
