NBA lockout talks stall...again
Negotiations between NBA owners and players have stopped again without a new deal in place.
The NBA owners offered a new proposal to the players' union Thursday night, but union executives looked less than impressed.
"It’s not the greatest proposal in the world but I have an obligation to at least present it to our membership," said union chief Billy Hunter (pictured above).
Player representatives from the 30 NBA teams will meet Monday or Tuesday in New York to review the owners' latest offer. If they do not agree to the contract after those meetings, the offer will get worse, NBA Commissioner David Stern said.
"We await the response from the union," Stern said.
There is still a chance at a 72-game season that starts Dec. 15, Stern said, though the union would have to agree to the revised proposal early next week.
