    Source: Owners, union to meet Tuesday

    The NBA and its players' union will hold a bargaining session on Tuesday and possibly another on Wednesday, as both sides look to end a lockout that is threatening the 2011-12 season, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

    The players' association has canceled a regional meeting with players Tuesday in Miami so its negotiators can meet with league officials in New York instead, a person told The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because the details were supposed to remain confidential.

     

    The NBA postponed training camps indefinitely on Friday, a day after the latest negotiating session failed to produce a deal, and canceled 43 preseason games from Oct. 9-15. The lockout entered its 88th day on Monday.

    Camps were expected to open Oct. 3.

    Last week, both sides said they hoped to resume negotiations this week. If the NBA is to avoid losing regular-season games, a deal would need to be reached by mid-October.

    The league locked out the players on July 1 after the expiration of the old labor agreement. Owners and players still haven't agreed on how to divide revenues -- players were guaranteed 57 percent under the previous deal -- or the structure of the salary cap.

    During Thursday's negotiations, the league offered players a 46 percent share of basketball-related revenue, 11 percent less than they received in the last deal and 7 percent less than the last proposal by players, a league source told ESPN The Magazine's Bucher.

    In negotiations, the players' union had offered to reduce its percentage to as much as 54 percent, with the stipulation that a mechanism would be instituted to reward the players if future revenue increased, the source said.

    The owners agreed to try to come up with a mechanism to solve their issues without adding a hard salary cap before the next meeting, according to the source. The owners, who have claimed they lost $300 million last season, have been seeking a hard cap -- a condition the players have been unwilling to accept.

     

     

    This part I like very:

    I think the lockout is more frustrating for LA fans.

    That optimism, sources say, stems from the fact that the construction of a deal made in the next 72 to 96 hours would not include a hard salary cap and would preserve guaranteed contracts for the players, which rank as two of the union's biggest priorities.
    Guess the fat chance got on a diet...

    What do the Red Sox have to do with the Celtics?  Very disappointing end to the season.

    Some people just like to antagonize others like him, Red16-Russ11, and some others who may be the same person.

    Guess the diet didn't work.

    "I wouldn't say there was any progress. What happened was, they put some concepts up, we put some concepts up, and we're still miles apart," union executive director Billy Hunter said. "There's a huge bridge, gap, that I don't know if we're going to be able to close it or not."
