Charlie Villanueva tweeted on Wednesday that the owners' 50-50 revenue split proposal is actually more like 46 or 47 percent of revenue for players, apparently referring to the fact that some $500 million in league revenue is cut off of the top to create the actual "basketball-related income" level.
The NBA's new (verified) lockout-focused Twitter account retorted by noting that owners and players have agreed to that revenue that comes off of the top. For some reason, in its reply to Villanueva (which was retweeted by the massive @NBA feed), the @NBA_Labor account included Thunder center Nazr Mohammed. That proved to be a mistake.
Mohammed let @NBA_Labor have it.
That's hilarious! I can't workout at our team's facilities or have contact w/ coaches but @NBA_Labor & @NBA can harass me on twitter lol SMH
Since I have @NBA & @NBA_Labor's ear...Why can't y'all come up to 52.5% since we already gave in 100's of millions & on system issues?
As the great Tupac said, "y'all done f--ked up now."
BONUS! Henry Abbott included a few body blows against the tone of @NBA_Labor in a long post on salary amnesty. @NBA_Labor is off to an inauspicious start.
