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.

NBA players and owners will meet next week to discuss the lockout. Yes, Commissioner David Stern and Union Head Billy Hunter will be in the same room, however, little, if anything, will get done.

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.
