Everyone in the basketball world was hopeful over the last three days due to the many, many hours the players and owners were negotiating. The NBA lockout has to be coming to an end, right? Not so fast. After talking for more than 30 hours, the two sides say that hardly any progress has been made. The owners are asking for a 50-50 split of basketball related income. The players don’t want to go below 53% — or 52.5% if you twist their arms. Even if the players and owners can agree on a BRI split, there is still a lot of other matters that need to be ironed out. As of right now, there actually isn’t anything the two sides have agreed on. Do you love basketball? You better be prepared to wait because Santa Claus is going to have come and gone before we see this sport resume action. David Stern Sick and Tired?
