    Nba could actually make more if they had earlier start times on some games. They missing out on the global markets because the start times make it so it's 3 am in most countries

    The answer is because there is a max on what you can play a single player and that’s a rule the owners wanted not the players


    If you could pay Lebron, Steph, Giannis, Harden and KD 70 mill a year then these other players won’t be overpaid

    This.

    Even Wilt Chamberlain, before he died, said every NBA player needed to donate 10-15% of their salary to Jordan because without Jordan they wouldn't have been seeing that check to begin with.

    I can post the video of when he said that, for the non-believers.

    uhhh... the "supply" part has to do with the amount of players that have the height, skill, and athleticism to make it to the NBA.

    They are .01% of .1% of a combination needed to make the league. Very little Supply of tall skilled players and very high demand for them. Their payout relative to other leagues will be larger because of this.

    After that there are a lot of other factors that make NBA players paid better than most athletes.

    The WNBA also has very little supply, but they also have very low demand. So they won't see the same numbers.

    More like thank Kobe cause the jump conincided with the increase in global popularity of the NBA especially in China.

    The popularity of the NBA in America peaked in 1998. No Finals has had ratings approaching Jordan's 6th ring.

    Also Kobe is more responsible for the NBA's rise globally than LeBron. He's basically the Jordan of China. He's the guy that made the sport huge over there.

    LeBron just participated in the lowest rated NBA Finals in history. His brand has not really increased the popularity of basketball either here or abroad. He just benefitted from what Jordan and Kobe did.

    I remember this dumb jew movie producer asked him to the same thing, is funny hearing this from a black person mouth, but 90 percent of UFC fighters are c00ns

    The NBA league makes billions of dollars that's how lmao, and they aren't writing 150 million dollar checks to players the day the sign

    but it's not suprising a UFC fighter can't grasp simple concepts because they all love getting raped in the ass by dana white

    I mean the NBA has so many revenue sources you can say the players are still under paid

    and the UFC doesn't make anywhere near as much as the NBA

    Boxers make more money than the UFC fighters because boxing fights are set up one at a time, each boxing even is it's own deal, it's own business, which it's own expenses, and profits

    it's not a league

    and most boxers are their own promoters and pay their managers, team, out of their earnings and the boxers who have pay promoters actually pay their promoters out their purse, except for the c00ns signed to Eddie Hearn and Bob Arum

    IMO, social media plays a part because a lot of corporations and big money pander to people online. The NBA has alot of f*ckery that keeps people engaged and talking even if people are not watching the games.

    Notice how haters of the NBA are always gleeful to broadcast how the NBA has low ratings. They cant help but talk about it.
