I believe Tom Gores not only purchased the Pistons, but also the whole entertainment portfolio from the Davidson's. With the exception of the JD, the coaching/training staff what other Piston expenses is Gores on the hook for if there is no season? It's possible he loses less if there is no season.. I have to assume the Pistons wouldn't have been a very good team translating into very few, if any, sell outs. This might be an example of addition by subtraction. Man I would really like to get my hands on last year's cash flow statement, balance sheet, etc.. Of course, I would have been in line behind the players/agents..
