Salaries will match value at some point – so either they were overvalued before or undervalued now – and it will correct. This is just getting closer to how society works. The NBA mitigates this with salary and term structures that don’t exist in real life. If people think the NBA is the best way, then we should reconsider the entire private sector. I’m not saying one way is better than another but this just seems like a diagonal vertical line (from bottom to top) turning into a curve. If I can pick up a 53rd man for $50K cuz his other job is at at a pizza place, and that roster spot provides essentially 0 value to my team, why wouldn’t I?
