I had a back and forth with somebody today about what players deserve to be paid. Not the whole "A teacher gets paid blank, and he gets millions to bounce a ball", but the new cba

One side was that they ARE the show and should be paid accordingly. People come to see them and without them there is no money. Unlike another company where the employee delivers the product, they are both.

Another side was that the fact the NBA is more marketable and can command so much more money than simply adjusting for inflation every time the cba expires, has nothing to do with the players, but the people behind the scenes. the advances in media technology, brand marketing, advertising and commercials. the game isn't necessarily that much better therefore people decide to watch. Its the same product, pushed differently. kind of applies to college sports as well.

I'll be wearing my away alternate jersey tonight, victory is guaranteed. We are 2-0 when I wear it and 0-1 when I don't.
