NBA labor talks break off

21
"Something happened in that board of governors meeting," Kessler said. "Yesterday we thought we were moving toward a deal. Suddenly, today, they spend very little time negotiating. As soon as we got in there and presented our offer and without caucusing, they said, ‘We don’t have to do anything else. We can tell you right now we’re at 50 percent, and it has to be our way.’ "We adjourned, we came back with the players. They said, ‘We will not agree to anything else unless you agree to 50 percent. I couldn’t believe it. I'm REALLY sick of the owners, particularly small market ones and the mindgames. I don't believe they are interested in a deal at all. They are interested in doing their deal, and are willing to lose a season for it. It's disappointing as an NBA fan. To me it's pretty clear, the players WILL get close to a 50-50 BRI split and compromise IF they agree on the systemic changes. Why are the owners unwilling to go forward on finding a deal on those systemic changes first?
