Owners and Players to meet Friday … well, sort of
In-house staff of the NBA and National Basketball Players Association will hold their first meeting Friday since the league imposed a lockout July 1, a person with knowledge of the plans told CBSSports.com.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is what it has come to -a meeting to schedule a meeting.
Today, the players and owners are having a sit-down of sorts, however, there’s no reason to get excited. Only mid-level executives are meeting; no Billy Hunter, no David Stern.
The only issue on the agenda is arranging a time and place for future, formal bargaining sessions. There will be no mention of the salary cap, revenue sharing, and splitting the Basketball Related Income.
At this rate, the lockout will never be solved. And there will never be basketball.
