pretty long read by BX standards in the link
When its broken down like this, it seems the players aren't thinking things out. If this is the biggest hurdle or the only thing holding things up, hopefully they realize that 50/50 is probably the best deal that they are going to get and return to the table.

Before u guys bi*ch about owners greed, walk into ur job and ask for a raise equaling 50-50 split of revenue. Hey bosses dont do anything ? Why should u work for 10 dollars an hour.

I agree the players arent the reason why the salaries are high. The majority of owners are losing money. Why not sign for 50-50 for a couple seasons. Nobody in the nba is going to make anything near their nba salaries. Players will always lose . Same reason why people work for minimum wage. Owners of businesses have more money then the employees, they got power. Basketball used to be about passion and heart, now its about money. Dumb, i got football
i wouldnt call 10 seasons a "couple" of seasons lol

if these players wasnt hell bent on 53% they might could try and negotiate that 10 down to 7

okay how bout we use lawyers instead of reg 9-5 or wall street any other profession the owners/head honchos would laugh at your a.ss
Still not the same thing. Pro sports are unlike any of those professions. Lawyers, doctors, stock brokers etc., are a dime a dozen. They can be replaced in no time with little impact to the company's bottom line. They are not the actual product being sold. For the most part, you can plug Doctor A in for Doctor B without a problem. You can't plug Player X in for Lebron James, just ask the entire city of Cleveland.

lol at this moron comparing regular 9-5 workers to 400 players with nba talent who work for a multi billion dollar a year revenue bussiness who are the face of the league and is the reason why they turn on the tv for the nba, buy tickets, jerseys ect and not only that the impact on the cities economies from these players or workers wow your a dumb fu*k

you have no leverage thats why your a.ss would get laughed at if you asked for a raise

how many of these threads u gonna come in and say tha same dumb sh*t lol.tha point he and any logical person is establishin is that of boss and employee.mcdonalds workers,factory workers,program directors all help gernerate millions in their own ways dipsh*t.u think nba athletes are tha only who generate money for tha boss man,and somehow they should get special treatment

do u not understand tha players hav zero leverage???owners dont need players to make money,if they did,they would giv into tha players demands.so lets see which side gets what they want 1st

nobody says its tha exact same thing.of course it isnt.but tha bottom line is lebron james is once in a generation.u might have 3-4 true franchise players in tha leagueand maybe 7-8 marquee guys.so no u cant replace lebron,just like at a time apple wouldnt hav been able to replace steve jobs,but eventually somebody will come

ding ding ding. man sad sight to see for some of you guys. workers with leverage too f!ght for what they can get. good job for the players f!ght and scratch for every penny for your 400 union because those 30 owners are f!ghting for hundreds of millions themselves
what leverage do they have?


None of the nba star players were unified until this last week

they were looking to take deals overseas

The chinese basketball leagues told them to fu*k off.

Nba only accounts for 41 days out of 365 days for the arenas LOL


NBA teams are hobby purchases for owners until a certain point lol

now the nba players will learn why the owners are rich.

They won't lose money if there isn't a season but the players will

highest ratings, tickets sales, revenue in the history of the nba. those are the facts from independant studies. now the owners can spit out whatever numbers they want and scew it anyway they want. its labor dispute 101

but thats not what the arguement is about here. they are spliting the revenue. what percentage goes to who.


the nba needs to do better revenue sharing or cut the ones the teams that cities dont support them in small markets if they are complaing about what teams are above whatever. dont blame the players for that sh*t

it IS the same thing. just because players don't walk into an establishment with a clock in card doesn't make this system any different from any other system of employment. this is capitalism.


it's greed from both sides.

Every employee generates money for their employer, but the guy at McDonalds isn't what brings people into McDonalds. The Big Mac is the product, not it's employees. McDonalds loses money if the products on the menu become inferior. In pro sports the athletes are what brings the people in, if they are inferior the company loses money. The owners need the players and vice versa, but the owners always have the leverage in these situations. It's because they have more money and can absorb the lose of an entire season.

Raja Bell:


I don’t think that’s a unique stand. At this point, I think that’s kind of been the way we all thought it was going to go down from the beginning. I don’t know that it takes any of us by surprise. Having said that, we’ll have to get together as a union and try to figure out where we go from there.… If there’s one thing I would like to say to people, and I’ve said it on every program that I’ve been on this week, is that I just think it’s very unfortunate how this thing has been spun in the light that it’s been spun. And obviously that was the NBA’s agenda and they control most of the media. And so to your average fan out there, it will come across as a player being greedy. When in fact, we are not the ones that are saying we won’t play. We offered to extend the current system. We made concessions off our initial stances. And the NBA seems to be the one who won’t play unless they get what they want. And I still think it’s unfortunate that at that point, even though this is in the media day after day after day, it still gets spun as if we have a problem. I think we all share in it, and that doesn’t come across very fairly. I’m not pointing fingers. But I’m just saying us a collective group [of players and owners]. That’s really what I have to say about this thing at this point

it doesnt matter who does what.an employees job in most cases is to generate revenue.and if your an employee,u do not dictate terms to your boss.see 2 and 1/2 men
in tha world of nba,who brings what is very debateable,and is a big issue.lebron james puts people in seats,udonis haslem doesnt.every team does not hav a marquee draw.
