Billy Hunter on Lockout: 'It's all about greed'
I’ve said the same thing: They’re not negotiating in good faith; they have no desire or intentions of getting a deal without a lockout because if they think they can threaten us or lock us out for a year or whatever, that the players will cave and they’ll get everything they want. … In this instance, as far as I’m concerned, it’s calculated. It’s all about greed,” Hunter said. “It ain’t about nothing else.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Just when you had hope -this happens.
This is about appearances, and nothing more.
After all, Hunter just called the owners greedy. Individuals who are serious about negotiating - especially when they feel a resolution is near - avoid these statements.
Expect the lockout to be extended for weeks, months, or maybe an entire season.
