NBA Season in Jeopardy as Players Reject Offer

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

The upcoming NBA season is in jeopardy after players rejected the league's latest offer for a new labor deal on Monday. "After two years of making a genuine and concerted effort to try to close a collective bargaining effort with the league and our teams, we've come to the conclusion today that that process has not worked for us," NBA Players Association president Derek Fisher said. The players have now begun the process of disbanding the union, and filing an anti-trust lawsuit against the NBA owners.

Mitch Lawrence, NBA columnist New York Daily News, talks about the breakdown in talks between the two parties and whether he thinks there will be any NBA season at all this year.

Mitch has made the most cogent, honest comments about the NBA stalemate and why it continues of any source I've heard (or read) yet.

This man has exactly stated the reason(s) for the lockout and why there is no season yet.
Bravo!
