The Chicago Bulls: Fiscal NBA Champions

As fans, we want the Bulls to win games, win games, and win games. Winning games is how we-fans measure success. But what about the team owners? How do they measure success? With professional sports being a business, I expect the team owners to measure success partially on net profit (aka operating income). So, which team is the NBA Fiscal Champion? The Chicago Bulls.

For fiscal 2008, The Chicago Bulls Organization earned $55.4 million net profit. This year, the Lakers won the championship, the Cleveland Caveliers won the most games, the NY Knicks and Dallas Mavericks spent the most money. The Chicago Bulls was the most successful NBA business organization.

Below, is a ranking of the teams by net revenue. As fans, we should be proud. Be proud!

Is winning everything? Is winning the only thing?
What about making a profit by staying under the luxury tax, with possible plans of spending the stashed dough on something/someone worthwhile in 1 or 2 years?

Trading for Boozer or Shaq, or signing BG or Iverson would not make the Chicago Bulls title contenders. Signing Wade and Bosh in 1 or 2 years would.

So, hey, this Bulls' ownership may have a real long term plan. They sure do have the stash for it.
