However, what’s most important to him when it comes to the NBA right now, he said, is that the league is playing again. Miami opens in Dallas on Sunday, plays its home opener against Boston on Tuesday, and then Arison, who also is the chairman and CEO of Carnival Corp. will leave for _ what else? _ a cruise vacation.
“As a league, financially we’re better off,” Arison added. “Not as a team, but as a league. And players, financially, will be well off as well and will be the highest-paid athletes going forward like they have been in the recent past. So I think while it was a loss-loss for everybody to lose the beginning of the season and have the problems we had, it was a win-win to get going by Christmas Day.”
