Potential NBA lockout makes the NFL lockout look like child's play.

Holy shit.

http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursna...wners-players/

Quote:
According to NBA executives familiar with the league’s strategies, once the lockout is in place, the owners will push for a hard salary cap of $45 million, the elimination of guaranteed contracts and ask that the players swallow a 33 percent salary cut.

The concessions made in recent weeks, including the “flex cap” of $62 million and a guarantee of $2 billion in annual player payroll, will be off the table.

If this seems certain to guarantee the loss of the entire 2011-12 season, it is because there are owners who think it is necessary for the long-term viability of the league.

Something has to give. Don't most teams lose money and some of them ALOT of money? It's not like they have a sweet deal between the major networks shelling out billions for the NFL rights.

If an NBA regular season game is cancelled in the forest will anyone notice?

Yeah, and they've opened the books from what I understand. It's not like players can say, "You're lying." From what I've heard there's quite a few owners that are going to say they can't even do business the way things are now.

As I undersatnd it, NBA players are in a better position to hold out on this lockout than thier NFL counterparts, because they will still get paid through the middle of what would have been the next NBA season.

Fortunately, NBA players seem like intelligent, well-educated men. I'm sure they have made wise decisions with their money, so their financial houses should all be in order.

They are more than capable of missing a year's worth of paychecks and could likely make as much or more in other fields.

The guaranteed deals in the NBA can be a killer. You get a guy making 10MM sitting on the bench and not even playing a minute a game.
A system where a player is coveted in a trade, not because he plays, but because he has a stupid deal that expires next year is messed up.

Most of them made more in a few years in the NBA than most players make in an NFL career.
