Default So what's the latest on the lockout?

With the NFL lockout ending today I realize I don't hear or read much about the NBA lockout. Have the players and owners met even or when do they meet or is there just not going to be a 2011/2012 season?

I don't want a short season. It takes away from the meaning of a team winning a championship. Does anyone really count the Spurs being the 1999 NBA champions?

They're not meeting again until the first or second week of August, I believe. No change whatsoever since the last time they met weeks ago.

David aldridge is reporting that david stern is not interested in a shortened season. The deadline for the talks was supposedly set for NOV 23, if a deal is not reached by then, speculations are there will be no season. I was reading an article yesterday. I'll post it later on.

I don't know... something is off with that graph. The Grizzlies are losing less money than the Heat and the Mavs? Uh....

I dont understand how this works. Say they dont have a season. Why would anything change between them when they meet to discuss a plan for next season?

Each side needs to understand that you might as well just make the lowest offer you possibly can, and be done with it. Why wait a year what will change?

Imagine they go into one meeting saying this is it, there is no more these players with these NBA if we don't get it done right now. We either have this full season, or we find new players.


The longer the wait the more each side is gonna get looser with their offer, so might as well just end it right now go as low as each side can and agree to the middle.

There won't be a season.

The owners are making a stand and the news today with the dramatic increase ($500,000,000 overall, roughly $18 million extra dollars per year per owner) of revenue going into the owners pockets in the NFL, the NBA owners are going to be even more motivated to sit the season out.

Think about it this way, only 8 teams in the NBA stand to lose more if there is a lockout then the average NBA MAX salaried player will. To take it further, over 400 players in the NBA are making money each year. Everyone of them makes money. Only 13 owners are making money.

So, when 100% of the players are making money but only 43% of the owners are making money, the players definitely stand to lose alot more than the owners do.

With the news about the revenue split in the NFLs new 10 year CBA coming out today, the NBA owners have all the reason in the world to sit this season out and let the players see what it is like to go a full year without making any money.

It'll depend on which owners are running the meetings. If the small market ones play the biggest part, then there won't be a season. If NY/LA/Chic are dictating the meetings, then it's very likely we will get basketball sometime in 2012.

What's weird is I know for a fact, that the Grizzlies actually turned a profit. Because it was in the paper that for the first time in 3 years they actually did. Plus they almost had more sell outs than the last 3 years combined.

I think Forbes is a little off.
