NBA owners are full of it. I get that the players will have to make concessions (shorter, less guaranteed contracts, whatever), but there is no way they are losing as much as they are claiming. Its too easy for them to mess with the books. For example, the same guy owns the Wizards and the Verizon center. He can mess with the rent payments to make it seem like the Wizards are losing tons of money....to the place he also owns. Anyways, the proof is out there: owners aren't exactly clamoring to sell. Even terrible, awfully wrong franchises (GSW) go for hundreds of millions of dollars. Even if an owner make an operating loss (which like I said, isn't exactly the be all end alll), their team is still gaining in value. I'm going to be so pissed if we miss the season.
