NBA : ARE WE THERE YET?…

Morning folks, Its a beautiful day. Well, as the NBA owners and players gather today in New York with the federal mediator , do we finally have a meeting ground established or do we have another smoke bomb. Well, as many media outlets have reported, there have been some progress toward a deal. Surprisingly, the OWNERS and PLAYERS do want to save the season, however an agreement must be made on this BRI idea. As the lockout continues, most players are taken their game across seas while larger name players have been barnstorming across the contry playing in charity events. Meanwhile. DEREK FISHER and DAVID STERN have been at odds on a deal. As Thanksgiving slowly approaches, many feared for the worst. The feds have finally gotten both sides to speak again and work towards a labor deal. Lots of money has been lost by both sides and seems to me that in order to get the fans back, concessions will have to be made at the area box office to sweetened their appetite again. David Stern has basically showed his true colors as it relates to profit sharing. The owners seem to get the best of the players when the labor deal is finally examined more in depth. The players on the other hand have learned a valueable lesson in economics. In my opinion, the players have to know that they are really the bargining chips themselves. If they put themselves up against the owners, I think it would have forced the owners hand a bit. But to get into a numbers game with all those HARVARD graduates will cost you. They are owners for a reason. Inconcluding, will the players ever regain the respect they oncew had from the owners?. Will a deal be struck today?…Will we have NBA basketball in the future?…..real sports ….real talk……
