During the league's first season in 1946, the majority of the players earned between $4,000 to $5,000. However, star players earned much more compared to other players.

How does the NBA lockout affect people?

It's where the NBA players think they don't get enough money from the managers and the managers won't pay them more so in return the players say they aren't gonna play basketball and go on strike. This continues until an agreement between the players and managers is reached and the players start to play again.


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.
