NBA Commissioner David Stern opened his lockout-delayed season by hearing boos from Dallas Mavericks fans on Christmas Day.
“It’s more about the fact that the NBA kind of gave up on the CBA before giving it a chance, and to me, that made them hypocritical, very hypocritical, and that didn’t sit well with me.” said Cuban.
Three days later, NBA executives are still acting like children over the Chris Paul non trade.
Mavs owner Mark Cuban said the league went through the lockout to prevent this very type of deal in which small-market teams lose their superstars.
NBA owners and players have reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout.
Union executive director Billy Hunter says the players’ association is prepared to file antitrust action against the NBA. He says this is the best situation for “players can get their due process.”
After two days of making some progress on salary cap issues, the two sides brought the revenue split back into the discussion and got stuck on both.
The talks Wednesday into Thursday morning were about the salary cap system, and Commissioner David Stern said they likely will stick with that issue when they resume.
Three days and 30 hours’ worth of talks couldn’t produce a new labor deal, so NBA owners and players walked away without knowing when they will meet again.
The NBA and players’ association are ready to try mediation, and Commissioner David Stern wants results quickly.
Christmas is traditionally the first big day of the NBA season. This year’s three-game schedule features the NBA finals rematch between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat.
NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled the first two weeks of the season Monday after owners and players were unable to reach a new labor deal and end the lockout.
