Technically Foul: NBA Season Is In Serious Jeopardy As Players Reject The League’s Final Labor Contract Offer!

- By Bossip Staff


Two years at the bargaining table led nowhere, so NBA players are ready to take their chances in a courtroom.

The players’ association rejected the league’s latest proposal for a new labor deal Monday and began disbanding, paving the way for a lawsuit that throws the season into jeopardy.

With All-Stars, role players, NBA champions and a new legal team crowding around them, union leaders announced the significant change in strategy, saying the collective bargaining process had “completely broken down.”

“This is where it stops for us as a union,” president Derek Fisher said.

And where the NBA’s “nuclear winter” starts.

“We’re prepared to file this antitrust action against the NBA,” union executive director Billy Hunter said. “That’s the best situation where players can get their due process.”

The “Overseer” commissioner of the NBA, David Stern, doesn’t seem to be moved or concerned in the slightest at his “boys'” decision…

“It looks like the 2011-12 season is really in jeopardy,” Stern said in an interview aired on ESPN. “It’s just a big charade. To do it now, the union is ratcheting up I guess to see if they can scare the NBA owners or something. That’s not happening.”

We won’t jump out the window and call David Stern a racist, but he is certainly a smug lil’ such-and-such…

Who will you point the finger at if the NBA season is cancelled this year???
