Well..The players may lose here and there... But these owners have tax dollars wrapped up in these stadiums. People outside of the players are going to lose money. In the end, the owners will lose heavily.


If no one is sitting in the seats, buying concessions, and all that other over priced sh*t at them stadiums, revenue is lost.

You expect players to play for free in high school and college, and then make them play for peanuts while you own the plantation in the pros??? I hope these players grow some balls and stick it out. Fans need the players, not the owners.
thats not the players fault there stadium sucks. look its all about money and if im a player in the league you better than anybody these owners just want more money. the league has been going on all this time and now there losing money. no there losing money because there giving ok players big a.ss contracts they cant live up to. plus b ball is at its best since the jordan days so nobody should be losing money if they make better decision on recruiting talent and managing there money. there isnt even enough superstars in league rite now for everyone to make what miami, lakers, knicks, and so on to make what they make plus these stars been on lame teams there whole career and in one year decide to move to winning teams with other great players and everyones broke. man gtfo here with that

plus playing is what opens them up to endorsement deals. they are lucky their job has the perks of being able to make millions on the side.

do the players not realize how fu*king replaceable they are. you cant easily replace owners. its not as if those nba players could manage that sh*t, or at least a great percentage of them would be clueless. think about it, every couple decades every player name in the fu*king nba has changed. if they make it where running a team, owning a team whatever, isnt profitable enough for the hassle then the nba wont exist and all future salaries are gone for players who arent even born yet. owners cut their loses they still rich.

what do the college players think about this i wonder. especially the ones who were about to make it. they went from being rich to falling back on the idk 50k salary the job they went to school for pays. bet they dont give a fu*k about a few percentage points.

anyway if they picked up replacements im sure they could make a business plan for 5-10 years. how many fu*king people in the nba wont even be playing by then anyway. it would just go back to normal. and all these fu*ks would be blackballed.

so your saying these Black boys should be thankful fo white massassh

anyway why are people comparing their job (where they are replaceable at the drop of a dime) to jobs where only a select few can do. I just don't understand this.
The NBA is all black guys now?

I never seem to get an answer to this but if there is no NBA what do these players do for a living? Go over to Europe? we already know that there are not enough jobs over there with the quota. Maybe they can start the own business with their degrees that probably 90% don't have.

They lose money when there is a nba season idiot, it makes no difference to the owners. Its funny everyone has logos of their favorite teams here, not players. Without the nba, there would be no lebron or kobe

Drop the science on how they lose money bro. I know its gonna be copy and paste from some other site or interview. You speak like you're at the negotiating table signing paperwork

And if you haven't noticed, soccer is internationally the biggest sport. Notice its not our favorite sport. Better get your head out of the 80's. The world stage is a reality. These guys will start taking their talent somewhere else.

You act like the NBA is some god like entity that breaths life into the world of basketball and nothing else will replace it. It was Jordan Not the owners of the bulls. It's Kobe not the owner of the lakers... It's Tim Duncan not the spurs owners. The players are what people want to see. And as long as true basketball lovers get their basketball fix, it will just evolve.
Fact is, if there is a beast of basketball talent somewhere, someone is going to demand it be broadcasted. Players are gonna have to humble themselves.

We want to see LeBron, Wade, Bosh, Kobe, Paul, Rose, Anthony and the rest of them on the court. NOBODY GIVES A fu*k ABOUT MARK CUBAN OR WHOEVER ELSE! Not all NBA players left college early. A lot have degrees and ways to make money elsewhere. Everybody isn't getting 2+ million a year.

do yall realize a player can move 1.5 million jerseys and the NBA writes them a check for 150,000. I know I don't have to tell yall how much official jerseys cost. Do you math though.
thats what your contract and agent and negotiations are for you negotiate that sh*t into your contract that you get a bigger percentage.

by not accepting the deal the players fu*ked themselves why would any owner in their right mind give up anything more?? the deal wont get anybetter it will only get worse.

all the stars going on this "World Tour" (greed) are the people who stopped the deal from getting done its basically like the government and rich folks preventing sh*t for the common man in america

I would go play for free.

the average NBA players career is 6 seasons.

so they are losing 1/6th of their career by doing this, all that money in the end, they might as well just play.

and LOL at the idea of the players starting their own league, they wouldn't be able to find arenas.

they would lose money cause who is going to pay brian cardinal to play? yeah the super stars can go elsewhere, but not the others.

and you are right is the players not the owners, but the owners have the contracts with the arena's, which they get usually at sweetheart deals cause the cities want the travelers, etc.

so they wouldn't be able to get a league without the owners.

also as I stated the average time of an NBA career, is 6 years, so without payment for a whole year, just do the percentage of what you they would lose at 1/6th their career.

the reason i watch sports is for the player sure but the reason im able to watch sports is because the owner. the reason i side with the owner is because of how many people they employee. those owners have opened up jobs for people who arent affiliated or employed by them like sports writers. the worst part is those names change all the time. most of the players wont be around in 5 years yet all those jobs should be. fu*king mascots cheerleaders janitors concession sales ticket sales security sh*t is like endless man. the owner gives back more to society then any player ever will with their money.

Its some Jews, some racists, some haters and some gays in this thread. I'm not bashing just performing a census.

In closing I would like to say fu*k the owners they didn't invent basketball all they do is invest money, there are not owed a profit. The players must live and maintain a certain lifestyle because their lives are affected so they deserve every penny they get. Kids tuition, houses, relatives houses, cars all that has to be accounted for. just because they play a kids game doesn't mean they should earn "boy" wages, the amount of dedication you you must have to perform every night is something you can't put a price on. Owners need to do what good investors do and that is take their share and walk if they aren't making enough because I'm sure someone would be glad to take their place.

Yeah its sheep everywhere and i agree with u. The players even purposed a % based deal that if the revenue stream could swing from 50% to 53% which mean both could be happy but they said no.

Bx can't be this dumb...wtf logic are you dudes using?So by your own convoluted logic the owners of Microsoft,Apple,Exxon or any other major corporation should walk away with their share if their employees are unhappy with their wages as opposed to the owners? y'all need to log the f*ck and stop being cheerleaders and groupies for ballplayers..Y'all treat them like idols.They play a F*CKING GAME for crying out loud.Aint no one trying to compare our lives to them either cause no person on here would willingly walk away from millions cause it wasn't enough millions....f*cking stans...get a clue...Do you know the start up capital the owners needed to start up this league? They created it.If Kobe has such a problem with it go to Europe.Bet money those European league players break towards the NBA...
