Players share of BRI is 51.2% this season.

Owners still will retain 10 percent of every player contract and have the right to keep that money if total salaries go over the allotted percentage allowed in a given season for player salaries, but they will not be allowed to take additional money from benefits or future escrow to settle up, as the owners proposed roughly two weeks ago.

I suspect attendance per game will be unaffected.

Michael Jordan took a huge defeat. If he follows his own advice, he should sell his team.

Since they are starting the season so late, maybe they will call off the playoffs. If baseball did like basketball ,the playoffs would start in early September and end in November.

It will be a truncated season and a normal playoff schedule.

Nick, you’re right about the common-sense factor.  But if I had a guaranteed contract for $10 million for a season, I would sure as hell expect to receive the entire $10 million irrespective of the games I played.  My legal argument would be the owners are the ones who shortened the season by their actions so the owners take the risk and therefore must pay.  In addition, if a player were to be injured and only play 66 of 82 games in a full season, he would receive the entire 88 game payment.  I’m pretty sure there won’t be many (none) sports reporters who will check on this information.

You’ve got a point. If it says $10 million per season, then contractually it’s good despite common sense saying you should make 66/82 of it. It would be interesting to see actual contract language. And you’re right - I doubt any reporters will actually investigate this further.

If I were a player signed to the air Jordan brand, I would be contacting Nike to modify my contract to a new Nike product line.

Michael Jordan cares about Michael Jordan.

That does not involve what is best for the players or the NBA in general.

I just finished chatting with K.C. Johnson. The contracts will be prorated under the terms of the agreement.

That’s what you would figure.

I really don’t know how to react. However, around playoff time, if the Bulls are anywhere close to being as good as they say, I’ll probably be stoked.

What? No props for actually finding the guy who knew what the hell was going on and sharing with the class? I’m hurt.

Just for that I’m going to go offline and go find a beer.

I’m sorry. It’s just that you know so many people affliataed with the various clubs. I’m still stunned over the fact you know Vicky Vette.
