Imagine if you took a $100 bill, then threw it into an incinerator. Don’t question why you’re doing it, just do it. Imagine doing that once every minute. Every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month, for an entire year. With that committed devotion to wasting money over a prolonged amount of time, you could throw away over $52 million dollars… and you could also approximate the financial status of the New Jersey Nets.
Now, to be fair to the franchise, they are not on pace to lose 52 million dollars this year alone. Everything is fine. In fact, they’re not on pace to lose 51 million dollars this year alone. Everything is fine. Are they on pace to lose 50 million this year alone? Um, on that, we have no comment.
