Europe enjoy another month of NBA players

New kick against the same wall. NBA owners, represented by Commissioner Stern and Players Association delegates (NBAP) became mired in gross revenue sharing the League (Basketball Related Income, BRI) and this has led to two consequences immediately: no official matches of the 2011-12 season at least until next December, and Stern and discard the entire season of 82 games "under any circumstances."

And this generates another sweet effect: Europe can enjoy for an extra month of those players in the NBA now provisionally Clubs line of the Old Continent: Tony Parker, Rudy Fernandez, Serge Ibaka, Danilo Gallinari, Nenad Krstic and Andrei Kirilenko, although the latter is for the purpose NBA player totally free, no ties.

The wall where the league and its percusses players NBAP is the usual: the happy BRI. The NBAP suggested that half point could lower their demand for the BRI, from 52.5% to 52%. If Stern had raised 51% for players and 49% for the League, the agreement would have been almost ready. That hoped Billy Hunter and Derek Fisher, representing the players, the other problems were fixed. But Stern insisted on fifty-fifty, 50/50 ... and Hunter left the room. Ipso facto, Stern announced the cancellation of the last two weeks of November. "You have to have income benefits", summarizes Stern. Loss in a shipwreck, just separate them $ 80 million per season. "There is no rational way to explain this behavior," writes Ken Berger.
