  • ESPN has an article up about a doomsday provision that they have in their contracts with players:
    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/...n-memo-players

    Essentially they have a provision already there that in the case of some event that could cancel an entire season, the owners would not have to pay back the players what they are still owed.

    For the players sake, let's hope it doesn't come to that.. but the owners have covered their asses.

      It’s a fair deal. The owners and players split basketball revenues... close to 50-50. It’s basically a partnership, except the players assume zero capital investment risk or business liability risk. It’s only degrees of upside for them. If there are no basketball revenues, then it makes perfect sense that both sides should bear the brunt. Also keep in mind that the players can still get all of their endorsement money which, in the case of elite players, can outweigh their salaries. All in all, the players have a fantastic business arrangement.... absolutely fantastic. No need to feel sorry for them.

                • Happy birthday to the goat who turns 34 today. Shame he was robbed of an exciting playoff run this year. His window is closing but he was having a fantastic all star campaign
                  It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                    The Great One posted a fantastic podcast interview with Kyle the other day on Vince carter's podcast, in which Kyle was talking about how he believes players can now push their bodies so much further than ever before... He was talking about the lengths he goes to take care of himself. He sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber for one thing, and was referencing how players like Lebron, Chris Paul... Tom Brady, are looking to redefine what an athlete's timelines might be. I'm cautiously hopeful that Kyle's got more left in the tank than any of us might imagine. Yes, he plays a tough game, and that's gonna take its toll. He also plays one of the smartest games I've ever seen, and has more heart than anybody... and I'm hopeful that'll keep him going for a while yet.

                    Definitely disappointing to see this time wasted though while he's really still in the prime of his abilities.

                    What an unbelievable gift this guy has been to the Raptors faithful. We'll never be able to thank him enough.

                    Here's wishing him many unexpected gifts today - and in the days and weeks ahead.

                    HAPPY BIRTHDAY KYLE

                    YOU DA REAL MVP.

                      Thanks for reminding me about that podcast. I forgot to listen to it.
