The number you are thinking of was a one year loss incurred in 2006-07 I believe, when the league saw its worst loss of the past CBA. It may have been a different year, but it was a low point rather than the most recent data.
And the original offer was a flat 2 billion per year, which using a 4% growth projection would equate to an average of 38% for the players, dropping almost to 30% by the final year.
