    I have been lamenting the coverage of this. Overnight, finally, a major MLS writer starts talking some sense.

    Half of NBA players, at least, have “drop dead” money (ie $10M net worth or whatever the number you think is a enough to tell anyone in the world to “drop dead”)

    How did this thread get to 10 posts without mentioning Andy Iro?

    When the context of acquisition cost is factored in, he is in a league of his own.

    If the NBA plays, they will also have multiple games a day. ESPN has no bandwidth to do anything other than stream these. The dollars for that would fit in a thimble.
