Default If the 2014 Nets isnt the most expensive team in history, then what was?

Their starting lineup all make 15 or 20 million a year. I dont remember a team that spent that much just on 5 players alone.

The Knicks had a 130 million dollar payroll once and missed the playoffs with it.

speaking as a nets fan, i have no idea if the old-age factor is going to crash and burn on us and / or if the loss of mediocre picks is going to cripple us in the coming years.

that said, prokhy is in the running for most popular owner among both players and fans. and not just for his open wallet, either.

The Nets starters alone are going to be paid $82.4 million next year. The entire team; $180 million. $80 million of that goes straight to the luxury tax. The Nets are very expensive. Hopefully it's worth it.
