I tried to make some changes to my last post but got a message that I iwas doing something "invalid."
I wanted to add that I may have misunderstood the Forbes numbers. The "revenue" figure of $181M for the Knicks, for example, likely was not net of players' salaries. Indeed the Knicks reported "operating income" for that season some five years ago was only $25.2M and that was EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.)
Whatever income teams are making seem to be hidden somewhere within "generally accepted accounting principles" and I am not an accountant.
In any event, I hope they work it out soon, and when they do, I am sure I will not have a clue as to which side may have really won.
