Ooh look - it's the New York Knicks.
I think It's got to be the Lakers throwing a giant pile of money at him

no,sold to a local billionaire so not looking to move.The guy who bought them is called Tilman Fertitta who in 1993 was outbid by $4m when the team was sold for $85m.Forbes valued the Rockets at $1.65Bn earlier this year so he has paid over the odd's this time.

its hard too see any team that's going to move in the near future,cant think of any that are pushing for a new stadium and using relocation to get funding.even terrible teams are making money and selling out there arena's.

interesting piece on ESPN about how much money NBA players actually see from there salaries.

reports that the highest paid player Steph Curry who has a contract averaging over $37m a year only receives around $15m after all the deductions.

Also on the NBA front a report that even with all the money flowing into the game 9 teams made a loss over the last season.

suprisingly the Lakers/Knicks who both make over $100m from there local TV rights deals came off very well,the gap between the 2nd highest rights deal of the knicks and 3rd best the Warriors($15m a year) was around $85m.

That is a lot I think a big hit to his is because California has insane state tax on sportspeople called the "jock tax" (not sure if the IRS has adopted this as its official name yet)

the "jock-tax" is only for players who live in no income tax states.

California has a 11.84% state tax(only state over 10%) which along with federal tax of 33.61% cost Curry $15.7m in direct taxation.

Florida/Texas/Tennessee are the 3 state's that have NBA franchises but no state income tax.

Ahh right I thought it was every player

In other corporate news I just noticed that Nike finally now have the league contract, might have to get some Pacers gear now.

I see Charlotte get Jordan instead of just nike for obvious reason but how do they not give Chicago Jordan stuff as well.
