The biggest gulf exists in profit sharing and the type and level of salary cap—another ominous sign that the League will undergo a labor stoppage come June 30. From the NYT: “Stern made that declaration Friday after a five-hour bargaining session that produced agreement on one key item — the preservation of guaranteed contracts. But the talks did not bridge the huge gulf on financial issues that divide players and owners. The process now comes down to a single meeting and whether the parties can make enough progress to justify further sessions. If a new labor deal is not adopted by June 30, the owners will impose a lockout that is expected to be lengthy and costly. ‘It’s just important because of the substance of our conversations today,’ Stern said of Tuesday’s meeting, ‘and because time is running out, and because both parties still remain, at least to me, intent on doing the best they can to make a deal before June 30.’”

This is why it is good to have a ton of old games from past years.

So the fans get screwed because players are being greedy. I'm in support of a lockout. Players get payed way to much they need to realize what they are doing for a job and should be lucky to get payed half as much as they do.

get ready because this is going to be MUCH MUCH worse than the NFL lockout


i didnt and still dont think the NFL will miss games


i would be surprised if the NBA doesnt miss games....alot of NBA owners are also NHL owners who locked out the NHL for a full year and the NHL is coming back slowly but the owners (i believe) are generating more revenue than before

Quick question so if this nothing happens this upcoming Tuesday, it means NO trades during
Draft night?

If it works like the NFL, then there will be no trades involving players. Draft picks (current and future) would still be able to be traded.
