Now I'm understanding why they don't want to be franchise tags.

This is gold:
There will undoubtedly be some owners who will oppose this rule because their small market status supposedly prevents them from being able to afford this kind of contract. As far as I'm concerned, if you don't have the financial wherewithal to spend an extra $25 million per season for the kind of player who can elevate your team to legitimate championship contention, you aren't rich enough to be owning a professional NBA team.
Someone has to tell this guy that this is a business and that the owners paid for it .. or just send him to Russia or Greece.
