I hear approximately of numbers such as 6 billion in annual NBA league revenue, of which 3 billion goes to team owners, and 3 billion goes to the players -- creating a wealthy "middle class" of NBA players, after a cap is implemented on the "max players".
Where does the 6 billion revenue come from? Tv commercials? Jersey sales? International tv commercials, eg, commercials in China during games?
What about ticket sales? For instance, Oracle Arena sells out every home game -- do the Warriors team owners have to share ticket revenues with the league? (I would guess so, since it takes two teams to put on a great game ... so the opposing teams are in a sense generating ticket sales at the Oracle ... )
