Default N.B.A. Players Will Re-Form Union

Quote:
The union representing N.B.A. players should be back in business by Friday morning, ensuring a timely completion of the league’s new labor deal and a Christmas Day opening.

At least 260 players needed to sign and return union cards by the close of business Thursday to keep the process on track. As of early Thursday afternoon, all indications were that the figure would be met. The cards are being collected and verified by the American Arbitration Association.

More here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/02/sp...r=2&ref=sports

EDIT: Confirmation by Howard Beck of the NYT

Howard Beck confirms over 300 players submitted signatures.

Welcome back officially, NBA.

NBPA release says more than 300 players submitted signature cards to American Arbitration Assoc, which oversaw the process.

My sources inform me that the players are reforming it to continue with the labor discussions as it's their consensus to perceive the current offer as unacceptable.

Don't worry, I already told my imaginary sources to fu*ck off.
