It depends on who is doing the firing. In essence the owners purchase part of a franchise, like owning a dunkin donuts, you buy from the central company but you set all the salaries etc. and keep all the profits from your chain. If the commissioner Roger Goodel deems an owner is unfit to have a team (violation of the rules, such as gambling), they lose the team but still retain the rights until it is sold, so they are out of football but they can still sell their team. Some teams have multiple owners, so kicked out by the other owners is possible, if 51% or more of the shareholding votes for it the party can be forcible bought out. The team has no say, nor do the fans. The team is employees, and the fans are just customers

NBA owners hire basketball players. They build or lease large arenas, and sell tickets to the games. If you've ever been to an NBA game, you've contributed to the wealth of an NBA team owner. You get to be entertained by watching the game. You pay for that entertainment by purchasing a ticket for the game. Or, you watch the game on TV, and you pay for it by also watching commercials. Advertisers pay a LOT of money to NBA owners (and the management of the NBA itself) to advertise on their games. There's a lot of hype about which players or which teams are better than others, and you buy into that hysteria by purchasing team shirts, jerseys, merchandise, posters, etcetera. The players who perform in the arena are also very well paid; it may be a job that they love, but it's still a JOB.
