    Nets lost $144 million this past season. $131 million more than any other NBA team!

    http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...seems-to-care/

    The basketball side of the Netsí business is projected to have lost $144 million over the 2013-14 season, according to a confidential memo the league sent to all 30 teams in early June. (Grantland has reviewed and verified the memo with a half-dozen sources.) If that strikes you as out of whack, thatís because it is.

    The NBA expects nine teams will end up having lost money once luxury-tax distribution and revenue-sharing payments are finalized. The Nets, with that monster $144 million figure, are the biggest losers. Next in line? The Wizards, with projected losses of about $13 million. Thatís right: The Nets lost $131 million more than any other NBA team last season. This is what happens when you pay $90 million in luxury tax for an aging roster and play in a market so large you are ineligible to receive any revenue-sharing help.



    The other "losers" that ended up losing money were 8 other teams and those teams lost only around 13 million and down.

    That is a whooping amount. Plus, they're gonna lose the things they got last season (Garnett and Pierce) AND will still not have draft picks!

    Go out on your front lawn, take a dump and see how long your neighbors will talk about that little slice of life. That's what Mike D did to this franchise./QUOTE]

    And btw, these kind of losses remind me of the Knicks circa 2002-2009. SPending a TON on the team, but paying around $150 million a year to put out that losing roster.

    I think the Lakers made 100 mill, despite that being our worst season ever lmao. And we don't get any of the revenue share since the Lakers are in in LA.

    You saw that too? They made over 100 million profit and pay the most towards sharing but yet still people hope they stay irrelevant. The lakers are good for the league.

    I believe most of that stems from their TV deal... Had nothing to do with how they performed this season... Tickets hardly put a dent in revenue ... So between sponsors and TV the lakers are set and they will stay that way.. Same with the Knicks...

    Yeah, the article says that the Lakers and Knicks are disqualified from ever being able to benefit from revenue sharing due to having such a large market but doesn't say anything about the Clippers or Nets being disqualified even though they are in the same market. Kinda bogus if you ask me.

    If a guy was to buy the Lakers, he would have to pay way more than any other owner of any team, he would not be able to ever receive money like other teams do even if he is under the cap, he has the biggest obligation to provide welfare to the rest of the league, he cant use his resources to be able to sign anyone due to the cap, and he will have other owners, coaches, and players b1tching when he makes a smart move, and a commissioner bending to that b1thching to veto moves.

    If I was a billionaire, I would buy the Cavs and just sit back and collect checks, cry about other teams making smart moves, and wait for the league to rig the lottery for me to get 3 number 1 picks in 4 years. Oops, Gilbert has already mastered that and he wont be giving up that gravy train.

    Knicks and Lakers make billions more in TV deals and sponsors ... They are a brand the Nets and Clippers are not and do not get the luxury of those TV deals ... That's why
