Commissioner David Stern, deputy commissioner Adam Silver, and San Antonio Spurs owner Peter Holt, who leads the labor relations committee, will take part, as will players’ association executive director Billy Hunter, union president Derek Fisher of the Lakers and union counsel Ron Klempner, two people told the Associated Press yesterday on condition of anonymity.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Peter Holt, Adam Silver, David Stern, Billy Hunter, and Derek Fisher will be at Wednesday’s meeting between owners and the union.
Five people at the sit-down of all sit-downs. Five people to negotiate the fate of the NBA season.
If Wednesday’s bargaining session goes well then there will be basketball, and the season may even start on time around Halloween.
However, if Wednesday’s bargaining session goes as most expect, poorly, the season will be delayed for months and maybe cancelled.
Hopefully, it doesn’t come to this and these five individuals map out a solution.
The stakes are indeed high at the sit-down of all sit-downs.
