When the ABA folded, the NBA paid off the owners of St. Louis and Kentucky handsomely to go away (even though they were two of the stronger groups left at the end, they also gave the Kentucky owner part of the Buffalo franchise). The St. Louis owners declined a straight cash settlement and asked for a percentage of the TV contract, which made them rich for decades (and then took a large cash settlement last year to end that deal).
