Polladaday: New Offer?

After meeting for hours on end Wednesday and Thursday, the NBA has offered the players what many believe will be its “last, best offer.” Should the NBPA take it and get the season started on December 15?

Should the players accept the latest offer from the League?

    The only reason the Player’s Association wont accept these offers is because of Derek Fisher. He is trying to distract people from his slowly declining production on the court and in the bedroom by stalling the season for weeks. Its a conspiracy.

    There’s some stupid stuff reportedly in the deal, like a 20 year old age limit and off-season drug testing, but they probably should accept it so that there can be a season.

    It’s not just about this season but the next 10 seasons, it would be short sighted and weak minded to cave to the bully boy tactics of the owners

    Click my name to read the offer that’s currently on the table for the players. That’s a decent offer, imho. I didn’t realize that the harsher luxury taxes don’t start until year 3 of the CBA. In years 1 and 2, the tax rate for teams with team salary above Tax level is still just a $1-for-$1 (same as 2005 CBA). That at least gives teams a few years to ready themselves for the harsher luxury tax penalties. Another thing that jumps out to me, is the elimination of the “extend and trade” which is the obviously the Carmelo Anthony rule. When you take away extend and trades, that makes “sign and trades” in the off-season more important than they previously were during the last CBA. Once the “sign and trades” are eliminated in year 3, then the only way a tax paying team can trade for a player entering the last year of his contract, would be to take a chance that the player doesn’t turn out to be just a rental after you move some assets for him. That’s basically what the Nyets did trading a buch of assets to the Jazz for Deron Williams, who could turn out to be just a season and a half rental, that is if there is a 2011-12 season.

    Two choices for the players: take the deal on the table, or hate life when the owners bend you over with their reset offer.
