their Bi-Monthly paychecks are pretty incredible.... do they really risk all this money by de-certifying the union??

If decertification occurs, players' contracts would become void

What do you mean do they? The union dissolved already.

So that means that all nba players are officially free agents with no contracts as of right now?

If that is the case, Luke Walton will probably retire today.

One of my acquaintances used to work at a bank. Jason Hart frequented that Bank. Jason Hart got like 18,000 - 30,000 (I forgot the number exactly but somewhere it between here) every couple weeks. JASON HART. The nobodies in the league I feel are probably more savvy and will save more since they probably still live a fairly normal life. So for a guy like Jason Hart, one years salary is enough for the rest of his life, or atleast a majority of it. Even though I dont think he is in the league anymore, do you think guys like him really care if they decertify? No one cares.... the only ones that probably genuinely care are the rookies with no endorsement deals that have not received any type of big bucks....

I always think of Luke Walton amidst this whole debacle. It is guys like Luke Walton that the NBPA wants to save and it is pretty ridiculous. They want to help save the guys who get payed millions of dollars to do nothing.

I always thought why dont the owners just say "Luke Walton" in defense of any type of argument? haha:clap:
