Dolan's investment in Amare has already paid him alot of $$$

The Garden is getting a 1 billion renovation plus the
Ticket praies raises.

If the OWNERS had a better revenue system, the NBA would never be in trouble.

Truth, but why should NY/LA/Chic have to support so many cities that just can't support NBA franchises? I think there should be revenue sharing, but bottom 4 teams should be cut.

And how do you explain that to T-Wolves and Bucks fans?

Or you can go the soft route

"We appreciate what you have done, but we are choosing to move forward in a different direction at this time."

Its not like Milwaukee and the Twin Cities are small markets. I dont understand why certain teams have trouble getting sell outs. Even atlanta has attendance trouble.

The problem is the GM's that give Darko,Webster and Drew Goddens bad contracts.

Because no one that has a choice chooses to live in Milwaukee or Minnesota over LA, NY or Miami. Well maybe some people do, but apparently none of stars that bring a draw.
