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.

Or you can go the soft route

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.

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.
