NBA talks break down over money, games in jeopardy Posted Oct 4 2011 2:47PM - Updated Oct 5 2011 1:07AM
NEW YORK (AP) -- Commissioner David Stern floated it as an idea more than a firm proposal: a 50-50 revenue split.
Even so, the union's reply was unequivocal.
"They said, 'We can't do it."' according to Stern.
And with that, the remainder of the preseason was lost and the first two weeks of the regular season moved to the brink of cancellation.
The NBA shelved the rest of its exhibition schedule Tuesday and will wipe out the first two weeks of the regular season if there is no labor agreement by Monday.
"We were not able to make the progress that we hoped we could make and we were not able to continue the negotiations," Stern said after nearly fours of talks between owners and players ended without gaining ground on a new deal.
So where is Senator Herb Kohl on his basketball team the Milwaukee Bucks?
Why doesn't Kohl give his players more money?
If Kohl is so loose withthe tax payers money, why is he so tight with his own?
Answer, he's a liberal!
Why is the media not talking to Herb Kohl on the BB strike?
Answer, because he's a democrat.
Another question, why are the teachers not protesting in front of the Bradly Center?
