But we're talking about the repeater tax here, and the ability to turn it off by staying under the tax line for two consecutive years. Is a lotto protected 1st really worth $30M or resetting the clock to year zero?
I think that's bad management.

You will reset the tax before your competitive again. I’d personally prefer my team to have an extra first that for the owner of a rebuilding team to have an extra 30M, but maybe thats just me.
Seems like the Cavs didn't get an offer of a 1st. If they had, they probably would've taken it.
Would you want your team to pay an extra ~$46m (salary plus luxury tax) for a 2nd or two? Or to take on a multi year deal for 2 2nds?
I would almost always prefer my team to have an extra 1st. But I'm not going to demand my team also pay $100m to do so. There's limits to smart business. I'd love my team to win a championship, but if they're not doing that, I don't think anyone does well to waste $46m.
Seems like youre offering a lot of conjecture thats unsourced. If you have proof they wanted a 1 and couldn't get it, I’d love to see it.
And if they truly couldnt get a 1, thats a poor reflection of the skill of Altman.
