No it's even worse than that. It's a capped league, and under the new CBA every team is expected to at least break even. So here you have the Grizzlies with a fan cost index (FCI) of $192.80, paying the players about the same as the Knicks who have an FCI of $608.78 ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ])

Three times the revenue, same player expense. That cash isn't going to amare & melo's pocket, it's going straight into Jim Dolan's diaper
