Union rejects owners’ latest offer

Remember when the owners proposed a BRI last week to the players? The deadline was Wednesday (today) and the players had the nerve to decline it. The players said they want more talks to sort things out. For a secornd there, I honestly believed we would have a season starting soon.The proposed BRI would fluctuate between 49% and 51%, although union president Derek Fisher admitted that it won’t go up to 51%. He also said the current deal is “unacceptable”, and he won’t allow the players to agree to such bullsh*t. Now I’m very scared, because if they don’t accept 50%, how are they gonna accept 47%? This lockout could loom on for a while, which is not what anyone wants. After football is over, there’ll be a good 3 months of no sports! Football will be over, baseball starts in March, and basketball won’t start! Crazy stuff happening in the sports world this year. There will still be soccer and hockey, but for 3 months? I forsee a lot of comedies in my future…

One fan (bdiddyvb) on ESPN wrote: “Who needs the NBA when we got NBA 2K12!!!”. Is this what it comes down to? I just think it’s crazy that we need to satisfy our sports needs by playing a video game. Please don’t get me wrong, it’s a spectacular game, but we are bros. Bros need sports, not simulations of sports.

  1. The sad part is that I’ve totally seen this coming for close to a year now…get ready for no NBA, and get ready for a significantly different NBA once it returns.

  2. Dude this is getting sadder and sadder. I have little hope now that there will be a season. One thing I’m hoping for is if the lockout lasts all season, maybe we’ll contract a couple crappy teams!

  3. I find that comment kinda funny though. That guy must be really obsessed with 2K12. I don’t blame him actually. Anyway, I don’t think that there’s going to be a season at this rate.
