You remember what I was saying about his break even point? I somehow got onto the ~$50mil number as the point where he'll be able to see a profit. I think this lower cap is a great, albeit sideways, mechanism to both help increase revenue sharing and promote a level playing field. For example, in three years the Heat will have almost $57mil committed to just LeBron, Wade, and Bosh! The Lakers will have nearly $50mil to just Kobe and Pau!
I don't think it's going to help players though.
