Owners To Deliver Revised Proposal To Players

It’s not a nice scene — Deputy Commish Adam Silver said Friday that a potential lockout is affecting negotiations with sponsors and other partners. The majority of teams are losing money, and the current system, in short, is broken. So, the League will submit a revised proposal in hopes of replacing the current CBA, which expires June 30. “NBA Commissioner David Stern said Friday the league plans to submit to the players’ union a revised proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement within the next couple of weeks. Stern also said Sacramento Kings owners Gavin and Joe Maloof have been granted an extension until May 2 to file paperwork requesting a move to Anaheim. The league’s labor situation and the Kings’ future were the key items on the owners’ agenda during two days of meetings that wrapped up Friday.”

    I hope some grounds will be made in negotiations. Everything is read between the lines. Owners better make fair offer to work around.

    “If players are taking 57 percent of the gross, it’s mathematically impossible to move to a profitable position without a new system,” Silver said.
    HA! That’s the most bullsh1t thing I’ve read from the NBA side yet. Does Silver think we’re that stupid as to think 57% gross means profit is impossible?
