Well if the players say fu*k it and quit then the NBA is over. The owners are stupid as fu*k to not pay them because I dno if the NBA could survive if the superstars left.

some of ya'l responses are sooooo telling...

muthafu*kas live and operate so deep in the box that they can't even fathom for a moment what it'd be like to actually start, own and operate their own business/league.

Scared business don't make business...if these men wanted to take it to the next level they could.. they have the loot, the consultants are out there, the investors are out there and the TV deal would be out there too...

ppl are acting like what he said was dumb, but really it was the most original and intelligent thing an NBA player has said in a loooong time..

they get paid nicely for what they do, but they don't own sh*t, they still workin for the man..still operating within his system... why not try and get somethin of their own? Why not try and move forward? Why not?
bc they are basketball players and not businessman. at least most of them.

"owning" something isnt always a guaranteed way to prosperity, u a.ssume vast amounts of risk whenever you own something like a league, team, etc

reading some of the people's posts on here explains why Black people have not owned anything since we arrived in the US...we are always waiting for White Daddy to approve and run what we want...if white folks can own and operate a league why cant Blacks do it...of course u will face opposition in many places and of course u would have to plan for this new league for a while...u might even lose a full season but look at the possibility of owning something of this level and showing the younger generation how to really make power moves...of course the players would not run the league by themselves because they probably dont have that kind of business sense but u can get retired players, experienced business men, etc etc to come in and help...of course nothing is guaranteed but these dudes have the opportunity to do something we have never seen before...i bet a good number of people on here use that same negative mentality in your everyday life but u have to k!ll that way of thinking...let White Daddy's hand go

see i like amare's thinking this isnt 1950 brothas got money!! and this is why there is a lockout to limit the amount of money THESE YOUNG BLACK MEN MAKE. they cant control these brothas anymore. i think they should start there own league!! im sure all the nba players would be down and lebron, kobe, d wade, bosh, dirk, melo, staudie, kg, pp, ray, cp, kd, steve nash, they would all be down and TV would back it with ease. it would be like when they put rucker park on bet expect on a much larger skill.

so instead of taking the 50/50 deal. they are willing to make up a league and get paid less than that?
