2011 lockout

  1. Bluffing or not, David Stern gets his deadline

    Nov 9, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    NBA And Player's Association Meet To Negotiate CBA

    For all of the emphasis on David Stern’s recent ultimatum to the members of the National Basketball Players Association, this is hardly the first time he’s issued a deadline threat against the union. The lockout has been laced with cancellation dates, each with the accompanying acknowledgement from Stern that the league’s offers would reflect the…

  2. Wizards rookie Chris Singleton shows some perspective on the lockout

    The NBPA hasn’t done the best job of managing their PR front. David Stern has done his damnedest to control the public message of the lockout, all while the factions that have reportedly formed among the players threaten to decertify the union entirely and rip the 2011-2012 season apart. Yet individually, the lockout has provided…

  3. Chauncey Billups doesn’t trust players’ collective ability to remain strong for a full season

    This lockout has never been as simple as one side negotiating against another in an effort to produce a fair deal. There are a number of factors circling the negotiations that inevitably have an impact on their progress and timeline. The NBPA still holds the threat of decertification, a breaking point from which there is…

  4. After deliberation, lockout negotiators decide not to bring back federal mediator George Cohen

    George Cohen

    UPDATE (7:24 PM): Per Howard Beck of the New York Times, George Cohen will not be coming back to the collective bargaining sessions after all. Plus, there remains no scheduled time or date for the resumption of talks. Delightful news all around. 2:18 PM: The negotiations to end the NBA lockout are not ongoing —…

  5. Players have avoided getting their hands dirty, but will the PR high road pay off?

    A dozen radio shows play soundbites of his voice on loop. There’s talk of competitive equity, of the struggling economy, and of players with inflated contracts. One calm voice meanders through accusation after accusation, and countless listeners on a dozen frequencies swim in the carefully manufactured bile. Somewhere, David Stern cracks a slight, sly smile.…

  6. Memphis holds advantage in courting restricted free agent Marc Gasol

    Sep 19, 2011, 1:54 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    At this stage in the lockout and the negotiations within, it’s impossible for any free agent player to address their situation with certainty. That much is guaranteed by the fact that no explicit communication can go on between player and team at the present juncture; any indications given at this point convey only intent or…

  7. Matt Bonner explains the lockout’s new beginning

    We’re now months into the NBA lockout. July 1st marked the expiration of the previous collective bargaining agreement, and even before that deadline passed, the lockout loomed over the 2011 off-season. Yet in terms of the timeline of negotiations and bargaining sessions between the players and owners, the lockout is in its infancy. Only now…

  8. Lockout or no, Jennings and others won’t be headed back to Europe

    We informed you yesterday of Brandon Jennings making some noise about heading back to Europe in the event of a lockout (an event which at this point has the likelihood of the sun rising in the East tomorrow). Today comes word that Jennings can go ahead and flip his leftover Euros into dollars, because he’s…
