Adam Silver: ‘Significant number’ of NBA teams losing money
So, of course, NBA owners are crying poverty.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver delivered the message, which should be viewed as a prelude to a 2017 work stoppage.
Tim Bontemps of the New York Post:
Adam Silver says there are still a "significant number" of teams that are losing money.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) July 15, 2015
That might be technically true, though I’m hardly convinced of even that.
They surely want to get even more money from the players’ share – or at least prevent the players from getting more than now. Owners saying they’re losing money is a way to bargain.
It’s just a strained argument – at best.
