The players of the NBA will lose $1.2B if the season does not restart, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.
Even though there is an agreement between the league and the NBPA for the season to restart on July 30 in Orlando, several players have expressed their concern on whether this is the best decision.
Players have the right to do as they choose. However, the economics on not playing are devastating:
💰$1.2B in lost player salary (35% of total pay)
🏀NBA now having leverage to tear up the CBA and negotiate a new one.
💰$2B lost in revenue to the league
