    Maurice Evans

    You have to love how both sides are making the lockout into some sort of battle of good and evil. Every time you turn around there’s some sort of hyper-dramatic talk about the other side, like they just started discussing euthanasia for puppies or how to steal from children. And today we’ve got an extra…

    Wednesday, representatives of the NBA owners and the Players Association will sit down in a room together and talk about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    It sounds ominous, but it’s no more ominous than all the other bad signs out there. This is really more about posturing and having your ducks in a row before heading back to the negotiating table.

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    We have no idea what really happened in the negotiation session between the NBA owners and the Players Association.

Still, here is the report out of today’s session, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com. “We held another bargaining meeting…

    Well done NBA League office. You issue an edict on players complaining aimed in part to stop making referees the focus of games — and you take it so far you put the focus back on the referees. In the wake of players complaints about referees being told to hand out technicals to any player…

  6. NBA, players union describe meeting as "cordial and constructive"

    Sep 22, 2010, 5:09 PM EDT

    Here’s what really matters out of the three-hour meeting between the owners and the NBA Players Association today — the two sides will be meeting again in smaller groups to tackle some of the tougher issues in the next Collective Bargaining Agreement. Meaning, they are moving on to the real work of negotiations. It’s something.…

  7. Owners, players to sit down, talk CBA again on Wednesday

    Sep 21, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    At least the two sides are meeting. The owners and representatives of the Players Association are going to sit down again on Wednesday at talk about the collective bargaining agreement, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com.

  8. NBA Players Association about to send proposal to owners, which will get laughed at

    Jun 28, 2010, 8:41 AM EDT

    Back in February, the NBA Players Association laughed at and rejected outright a new Collective Bargaining Agreement proposal from owners.
