Next NBA Labor Meeting to Take Place This Week?

According to ESPN, representatives for the owners and players are attempting to set up a meeting this week, as time continues to run out for the NBA season to start on time (if at all): “The NBA players and owners are trying to set up their next bargaining session this week. They are hoping to meet Wednesday and/or Thursday in New York City, according to sources close to the situation. With the scheduled start of training camp just two weeks away, both sides are feeling a heightened sense of urgency. While tough rhetoric has come from both camps, sources say neither wants to postpone the start of the regular season. Both sides are currently trying to rearrange their schedules to make way for a meeting. Any meeting this week will be a small group meeting that will include just a handful of leaders from each side.”

    if the owners would just accept the soft cap as the price of revenue sharing and lower revenue amount for the players this could all go away. compromise people, for the love of god, I need NBA basketball.

    “trying to rearrange their schedules to make way for a meeting.” What? shouldn’t trying to end the lockout be the only thing on their schedule, what else could possibly be as important.

    In an attempt to improve relations between the players and owners, they are going to have pizza, booze, and hookers at the meeting. This has proven to be a tried and true way to break down barriers and get people out of their comfort zone.
