"The funniest part is all this "you have to take the biggest contract for the union!" stuff is nonsense. The players are guaranteed a set % of revenues. If the total player revenue falls short of their guarantee, the league takes the difference out of escrow and all the players share it. Every $ one guy makes is just a $ someone else does’t get. The pie is fixed, it’s just about how it’s split up, and the bigger your share, the less there is for everyone else."
