Idk how you came up with a 2% profit rate or those huge valuations (for your math to be correct, NBA teams' combined value should be ~15 bil, no way).

Btw, as per owners' math, they are breaking even at 53% if owners get those 53%. At 50-50 owners are still losing money - but that epends on who you ask, of course.
I was referring to the ROI vs the initial investment. The average franchise is probably worth around 500m, based on the prices paid lately for Detroit and GSW. If I invest 500m and I make 10 million a year, that's a 2% ROI which is ridiculously low.
