I would love it if we didn't have to hear and see much from Lebron "I favor contraction" James. The fix for bankers was financial regulation to discourage risk-taking. What's the fix for athletes?

Maybe I missed it, but does the article ever explain how superstar salaries stifle the salaries of the other players? Or is that just a catchy headline having little to do with this opinion article?
