Following a paper trail of money involving millions of dollars is easy, IMO. If the NBA can't track millions of dollars, then they are a trash organization.
That was a weird situation in that he was trying to force his way out and pick a destination to land. That's actually another example of a player using the system to help push him where he wants to go.
As for tracking the money, that's not the hard part. It's proving that it was unfairly gifted.
I think it's fairly easy to prove, IMO. Let's say that Lebron did, in fact, get Warner Bros to give AD a role in Space Jam 2. Well, all the NBA really needs to do is look at AD's movie contract. Is he getting paid $4 million for 3-4 days work? Is that money he's getting for his role commensurate with what other actors are getting for similar gigs? What are the other NBA players in Space Jam 2 getting paid? Is Dame Lillard getting $4 million for the same amount of work? If not, then the NBA has something to work with in building a case that the Lakers are circumventing the salary cap
