also, as insidehoops points out, these figures are estimates by forbes and have been directly disputed by the nba, so take them with a grain of salt. however, even with these numbers, its clear why the owners would want to reduce their largest operating cost moving forward.

Player salaries are at 58% which is exactly in line with every other sports league, and the players have agreed to bring it down to 54%. Don't forget the players are the product, and I would argue that NBA athletes are the best athletes in the world and deserve a little more than most others.
