NBA Players Mulling Over Latest NBA Proposal

November 13th, 2011 by Colin McGowan


Once NBA players digest all the details of the owners’ new contract proposal — including a clause that opens a way for more player demotions to the D-League — it’s hard to imagine even those desperate to play would be willing to ratify it, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher.

I haven’t chosen a side in this dispute, but the way in which the owners have proposed a terrible deal, then sat back and said, “Well, it’s in the players’ hands now” is the most disingenuous, awful thing. That these negotiations are still a PR war makes me angry enough to watch hockey (hockey!).
