Stern, owners take legal action against NBA players

The NBA has filed an unfair labour practice charge and a federal lawsuit against the NBA Players Association, accusing the players of failing to bargain “in good faith” and of “impermissible pressure tactics” in labour talks.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The he-said, she-said just got uglier.

This morning the gloves came off when Stern and the owners filed an unfair labour practice charge against the Players Union for failing to negotiate ‘in good faith’.

Apparently, the owners didn’t like the players threatening to dissolve their union like the NFL and are hoping a federal court will make sure the lockout doesn’t break anti-trust laws.

I’m not a lawyer. Neither are you. I do know this lockout is getting nasty. A resolution, and the playing of basketball, does not seem on the horizon.
