NBA Lockout; What They’re Saying | Sports, News

–Whats being said…..

“We had a great year in terms of the appreciation of our fans for our game. But it just wasn’t a profitable one for the owners. And it wasn’t one that may of the small market teams particularly enjoyed or felt included.”

– NBA commissioner David Stern

“Obviously, the clock is now running with regard to whether or not there will be a loss of games, and so I’m hoping that over the next month or so that there will be sort of a softening on their side and maybe we have to soften our position as well.”

– NBPA executive director Billy Hunter

“My level of disappointment is for a lot of our fans and people who follow our game. Although they’re not going to miss any games at this point, they still just don’t like the prospect of a lockout. We don’t like it either. But our owners feel like it is the best way for them to get what they want. We don’t agree. We’re still going to continue to negotiate in the midst of this lockout.”

NBPA president Derek Fisher

“The people who stand to have their livings impacted by a shutdown of our industry are going to have a negative view of both sides (and) I think our fans will tend to have a negative view of why can’t you guys work this thing out.”

– Stern

“Lakers Dallas Miami Knicks Magic Bulls Boston and a few others always hav the best chance at the top free agents do to city and money so the smaller cities team cant compete so they can never get better and there always losing money.. so since they cant control each other spending money on players they want us too do it for them by signing a new deal… its that simple (sic).”
