Under the new CBA, the player would make only \$4.6 million (46%) But \$4.6 million is only 81% of \$5.7 million (\$4.6/\$5.7 = .81). Or since the player is making \$1.1 million less, we can say it's a 19% paycut (\$1.1/\$5.7 = .19) So basically, the owners want the players to take a 19% paycut in salaries. Yeah, math!!! :banana:

Yay, 19% cut!
SHould be more stil...

There's some hope for a full season according to Ken Berger from CBSSports.

So if there's no deal by the 2nd week of October, we shouldn't expect a full 82-game season?

 When will each side be ready to take it? Not yet. Not Thursday, and maybe not next week, either. The drop-dead date to preserve the season intact -- Oct. 13 or 14 -- is still three weeks away.

That's right. I would say it's even earlier.
If there's no deal by early October all my hopes for a 82-game season are gone.

It's looking like a canceled season is becoming more realistic.
