89. It's different on the other side of the business.
I'm not a basketball fan so I really don't care if the NBA ever comes back. However, from what I've gleaned from listening to sports talk radio, the NBA's financial setup was just broken. The way the cap and revenue system was set up made it really hard for teams to compete if they made a mistake on a player or if a player got hurt. Trades were tough to make and free agency was a nightmare. And everyone except the players seems to agree that the CBA was weighted too heavily in favor of the players. If they want to compete and survive they should trim a few teams and adopt an NHL (who also should cut a few teams) style of cap and free agency and a style of revenue sharing similar to the NFL.

As far as Jordan goes, he a competitor, some might say the ultimate competitor. He's a win at all costs kind of guy and I'm not surprised that he has taken the same attitude now that he's on the other side of the business.
