    No one cares about the NBA. Empty arena’s, overpaid players, no balance of power, crazy cap, and guaranteed contracts. Watch college it’s a better game.

      apparently YOU care or you wouldn’t have been on PBT commenting.

    Owners were stupid to give the players 57% of basketball revenue in the last agreement. Why give your employees more than what you are getting???

      Because no one goes to a game or turns on the TV see an NBA owner.

        Want things to be equal? Then let the players take on 50% of the risk as well when they lose money. I don’t see them making that concession.

        What a joke. I hope the lock out continues.

    What a sad state of affairs. I can’t envision how this situation will get resolved without some major changes. Unless another source of revenue is introduced (can you say advertising on jerseys) I don’t know how the current economic model can work in today’s environment. They took as much as they could for as long as they could. A band aid will not work in these tough economic times.

    Who cares about the NBA? You do obviously, since you’re reading articles from an NBA dominated forum.
