I like the idea of a 66 game season. Not a Lakers fan thought. Rise Up Hawks, and show em the highlight factory.

Right. That's 50% of revenues. With the other 50%, the "owners" get to pay non-playing staff, rent, and all other costs of running the team. Every NBA team will now be a money loser. Well done NBAPA, well done. Another industry bankrupted in the name of the opressed worker. (Do I sound harsh? Good.)

Yea -- so how did that turn out? I heard the players settled for 50% of revenues (is that tickets, TV rights, everything?). What did the owners give up to the players? And, did I hear right that the average NBA salary is $4.3 million? Seems like a great reason to practice in the school yard...

Great! NOW we get to watch a bunch of millionaire thugs and felons run up and down a basketball court in their skivvies again. Can't tell you how much I missed *that*.

Hello men in man cave... is there any NBA fans here, specifically Laker fans? Does this team have any place where we can discuss sports or anything else we enjoy?
