That's the insidious nature of the escrow-enforced triple cap system. It pits player against player, teammate against teammate, those under long-term contracts against those about to hit the market.

>>Larry Brooks, being his usual CBA=Sky is Falling self. Ironically, the point of his article is right: The players should enact the escalator and hope revenues grow to limit their escrow payments. But it's a joke for Brooks to pretend this mechanism has an "insidious nature" rather than, well, the nature of collectively bargained contracts: You sacrifice some individual choice when times are good for you in exchange for some individual (and collective) security when times are bad. That's why people form unions.
