You realize they don't have to actually build arenas right?
So the NY franchise would play where? Because MSG wouldn't take it. Where are there huge arenas without teams? And you would show the games on where? Who is paying your TV money? And advertising money? Because people already are tied up in contracts with the NBA.
The league would call an impasse and unilaterally impose a new CBA, one which even if much worse, would be better than a player financed league (in terms of payments). And players also have contracts with Nike, etc. which specifically ties to them playing in the NBA.
You can't build a new NBA.
