Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Performs Prince’s “Purple Rain” For Karaoke

Sides snipe about proposals

NEW YORK -- The NBA players' association, not Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, proposed the elimination of the salary cap in negotiations aimed at ending months of labor strife, a league official said Tuesday.

The Players Union Wanted No Salary Cap

Two more weeks of the 2011-12 NBA season were canceled yesterday because the owners and players are still so far apart in their current labor negotiations.
