Let's say there's only one person in the league. League revenue is $10 million. Under the current CBA, that player would get $5.7 million (57%). 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!!!

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.
