1) Basketball has a better union
2) Basketball plays more games
3) Basketball is a much more global game

well think about it like this, in football the majority of players play 1 position. a few play than one but most dont. basketball players in a game players both ends offense and defense. the linebacker gotta figure out a a way to stop the offense thats all. the nba player has to figure out a way to stop the offense and score their own points. maybe i aint makin no sense cuz just now i forgot wat my whole point was but oh well.

This answer is simple.

The amount of games played. Football you have 16 regular season games to generate revenue.

Basketball has 80 games to generate revenue.

Maybe because it's 12 - 15 players on a team versus like 50 with the practice squad.

i think NFL should get paid more, they train in summer play all winter, unlike basketball, same weather in doors all year, & some of these guys r like 320 lbs running everyday of the week, then the other guys who r like 200 lbs r gettin smashed by the 300 pounders. not to mention these guys gain like 20 more lbs with the pads & helmet.


if u tap anybody 6 times in basketball ur fouled out, if u hit the the sh*t out of 6 people in football depending on ur position u might get cut for not hitting enuff.


football players should be paid more

Co-sign, The roster is the major difference in basketball and football. THe salary caps for football and basketball are not that far apart (Ex 100mil for basketball- 90 mil for football) but football must distribute their money to over 50 players on a roster while basketball only has to distribute their money to 15 players. Do the math and you will see that distributing a 100 mil to 15 players will give the player a higher salary than distributing a 100 mill to 50 players.

main reasons: marginal productivity of labour (nba players are worth alot more to their sport in a $ sense), union and owner deals (the nba's union worked out a far better deal) , there are also many other factors but these are the main 2

That 2 i forgot that the average NBA player is a whole lot more marketable than an NFL player. in football most of the time u cant see their faces and alot of ppl dont know who these guys are without their helmets. i mean hav u ever tried 2 market some name brand cleats to a kid cuz their favorite player wear em lol. wat about pads, and helmets lol, the average person dont buy those things. evrybody has sneakers. and n*ggas will wear a basketball jersey outside in leisure b4 they wear a football one.
