Here is part 2 of Art Rondeau‘s solution to the NBA lockout. Enjoy!
1. The proposed new solution uses a stock market model. Using 57% of Basketball Related Income (BRI) for our example (the percentage that players received in the last CBA) and $100M for the average team BRI (based on data from Hoopshype.com), we break the $57M into $50K “shares”. This comes out to 1,140 shares per team. The $50K share price is an estimate.
Here is some footage from the Impact basketball league in Las Vegas.
I’m not going to lie… I am very excited to see Shumpert play in the NBA.
I know… the site has been dead. However, today, we have a special treat: a new post from the great Art Rondeau!
Art has come up with a unique way of solving the current NBA lockout, and I believe everyone should check this one out.
Way back in April, we posted “Chant For Donnie“, a post urging Knick fans to chant for Mr. Walsh at the last home game. I ended that post with the words: “Let’s show our appreciation to the man that has made New York City basketball relevant again and to the man who might not be here next season”.
Shout out to @Pavvy8 for putting together this video. I really want an NBA season.
The 2011 NBA draft saw the Knicks take Iman Shumpert with #17 pick in the first round, and Josh “Jorts” Harrellson in the second round. Knick fans were divided as a whole as to whether it was a successful draft, and so with inspiration from Lohud Knicks, who hosted a similar roundtable discussion at the end of the season, we present you with the 2011 Knicks Draft Roundtable.
Welcome to the Knicks, Jorts.
In anticipation for today’s draft, I have searched high and low for a sleeper candidate, or a potential second round impact player. I think I have found him. Meet Norris Cole, a 6-1 skinny point guard out of Cleveland State who entered the draft as somewhat of an unknown. However, he has impressed NBA scouts, and has really held his own in recent workouts.
It seems as if the Knicks have a new (ever-so-slightly tweaked) logo. While the new logo does not currently appear anywhere on the Knicks official site, it can be found here at the Knicks shop in the NBA store website.
Darius Morris, a pass-first point guard out of Michigan, is quite an interesting prospect. He stands at 6’5, but still possesses all of the traits of a distributing point guard. He can go to the Knicks at pick 17, or he could possibly fall into the early second round.
Bismack Biyombo is a projected late lottery pick as of now; however, nobody has any idea where he will land on draft night.
Biyombo caught the eyes of NBA scouts after his historical performance in the 2011 Nike Hoops Summit. During that game, Biyombo recorded the first ever triple double, with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and most impressive, 10 blocks. Soon after his stellar performance, he found himself projected to be picked early in the first round. He became an overnight sensation, and now he could go as early as fifth, to the Toronto Raptors.
