NEW YORK -- Amare Stoudemire emerged from Tuesday's labor talks around 4:45 p.m. with some positive news. While walking through the lobby of a New York City west side hotel to leave to catch a flight, he said, "Both sides are really confident about getting something done soon."

But he did caution that the owners and players, who are now in their third hour of negotiations, are "not sure if the season's going to start on time or not.

Stay tuned for further updates.

For a second I thought this was the false report Metta World Peace gave us earlier today:laugh2: But then I saw the Amare part. Anyways when would everything start if it's going to be over soon?

Usually when we hear an NBA fan say these words is when he team is about to make solid FA signing or are about to make a really good trade. :laugh2: I echo these sentiments however.

Owners only offering the players 47% BRI up from 46%. Season is in major trouble. Players want 53%.

i think they will meet at 50/50. just depends on how long it will take to get them there.

Once season games are missed, and tv networks start backing out of their deals.... there is no way that the owners move off 47%... they will prob drop down to 40%

I am sure that a deal will get done. The question is when?

Amare might have been optimistic, but neither Hunter nor Stern sounded very optimistic. Now all of the preseason is cancelled and by Monday, if no deal is reached, the first 2 weeks of the season will be cancelled.

I'll believe it when Derek Fisher says it.

I should know this, but if they decide that a full 82 game season isn't happening, is it automatically a 50 game season, or can they play any number of games they determine?

nevermind, my ridiculously lazy *** just flipped over to research it and found out they can simply cancel a week or two at a time if they wish.

Good to see Amare's confident. From what I'm hearing he's the only 1 who is confident in all of this.
