What the actual fuck are you on about?
Is Bogut a "Genius" too becuase he's good at Basketball?
I think maybe you should invest in a Dictionary, because I don't think it means what you think it means.
Besides, in ascribing any of this to "Genius" you completely miss the point.
As the saying goes, "Good Ideas are Cheap."
What LK has done, I would say is broadly threefold:
1) He has understood what it takes to have a successful NBL (and I'll give you a hint, its not a 500 member community club in buttfuck NSW.)
2) He has put his money where his mouth is. Bigtime, we're talking 10's of millions. And credit where its due, I think a lot of the money is basically a donation.
3) He has convinced others to do the same.
All of those media outlet for NBL have only come about because LK put the money into developing and producing the product, offering the networks a finished product at a bargain price.
Now detractors may say that he can afford it, and I suppose that's true, but it's still been a massive and sustained investment.
And unlike others who have backed individual teams, he hasn't pissed off after a couple of years.
Also, whilst he effectively controls the league, he hasn't been a dick about it.
People slag off his efforts in Taswegia, and obviously he is trying to milk the State Government for whatever he can, but it will still be a massive investment of HIS money.
