Okay, okay, and okay we’re heard this all before please tell me something I’ve haven’t heard before about this NBA lockout.
This lockout will happen. They’re meeting to save face in the public eyes, as a fan how much should I care about them meeting just to meet, players with their “STAND” t-shirts and the owners with their weak proposal. My guess is the NBA wasn’t educated by the NFL and NFLPA CBA battle.
Thursday will roll around and nothing new will have happen, and we will see the commissioner, David Stern, with the sad look on his face announcing that the owners have no other option but to lock out the players, starting at midnight. How long will it last, if it’s anything like the NFL, which is over 100days in their lockout, my guess it will go deep into the summer months.
The big problem is that teams are losing money or not even making money. With the players taking home 57% of all revenue the Owners’ are looking to prevent this from happening next year. One way the Owners are looking to solve this problem by rolling back players salaries and have a lower salary cap. The players on the other hand, solution is to open the conversation with a more equal revenue-sharing pie and leave the salaries alone!
Well I know one thing is for sure that come Thursday I’ll be watching a lot of the NBA Classic, NBATV, and heck I might even pop in some VHS, okay I might be reaching with VHS but as a NBA fan I’ll truly miss what my Milwaukee Bucks new cast of players will do next season. Hopefully, whenever this battle over millions is all done there will be great games for us to sit back and enjoy just like this past season. Until next time live out your DREAMS with some Determination, put forth Real Efforts and given your Abilities; Mean you will have Success.
