Smile League's BRI expected to rise 3-3.5%

Quote:
The NBA projected a 2.5 percent to 5 percent drop in revenues last season, and revenues ultimately went up to the highest level in league history.

Sources tell CBSSports.com that the league’s accountants are projecting a significantly better 2010-11, with current projections calling for a 3 to 3.5 percent rise in basketball-related income (BRI).

That would amount to a second consecutive season of record revenues for owners who are insisting they’ll lose another $370 million this season.

I wonder how much that has to do with

A: a high profile NBA Finals which did extremely well (if I'm not mistaken) in the ratings department

B: The Summer of LeBron where the NBA was front and centre and gained more exposure for that one act than I can ever remember.

Just because the BRI goes up, doesn't mean the owners aren't losing a ton.

Yet the owners are trying to take a page out of Rob Ford's book and are insisting that the "Gravy Train stops here" lol
