NBA fanatics all over the world are definitely not happy with what’s happening now. The league and the players weren’t able to come up with a decent collective bargaining agreement thus the regular season couldn’t kick off this coming November 1st. Opening games including those between Dallas Mavericks and Chicago Bulls as well as the one between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the L.A. Lakers wouldn’t be pushed through.
For those who were able to purchase tickets for the opening games, the league said that there will refunds including interests for all NBA season-ticket holders for all pre-season and regular-season games that were canceled. Better start coordinating with your ticket broker now to know the details on how you’re getting your refund and for more information as well.
Devastating to think but this is really happening. The league owners just can’t agree with the terms that the players are asking and in return the players are much willing to give up the opening games to air out their sentiments and to prove that they’re firm in their decisions. “This is not just about dollars and cents for players. It’s about a system for our guys to operate under,” said Derek Fisher of Lakers, the president of the NBPA.
“Unfortunately maybe we need to miss a few games for them to know there’s resolve among the players,” said NBPA executive director Billy Hunter. It’s like having a transport strike in the world of basketball and if this will not be resolved the soonest time, there is a possibility that NBA 11-12 season will not push through. Let’s just hope for the best.To receive updates from WWNN.co.uk directly to your e-mail, you can subscribe to us for free by entering your e-mail address here and confirming your subscription by clicking the link that will be sent to your e-mail address.
