(as always, open to a title change) With Yabu's option picked up, and Mook looking like a 6th man candidate, there's a good chance the Celtics will be paying the tax for a long time, and likely the repeater tax. If the AD dream ever happens, that will be a huge bump as well, since you'd likely be replacing a future Jaylen max, at ~$30M, with AD's max, which would be closer to $40M. Say that you're Wyc, and you have a team whose valuation is skyrocketing, but whose cash flows lag. What are your options for actually paying the tax year-to-year? $100M+ bills are substantial for low B billionaires, given that most assets aren't generally held in cash. Are there PE-type firms that will bridge that gap? Are there analogous transactions in other industries? It's not my money, but it's still going to matter soon for my viewing experience.
