According to Sean Deveney of The Sporting News, league executives and player agents are expecting another work stoppage as soon as the summer of 2017, when either party can opt out of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Ideally, whether labor or management, you begin work on the next negotiation the day after you sign the last agreement. For the players, they have not been able to do that. They still need to find a director, and once they have one, they need to assemble a team and work on a strategy. They’re way behind.

Why? To make the league even again after the last CBA was to ensure LeBron would have a title run after Dallas beat them?

Maybe now that the dictator Mr. Stern is gone things will be less adversarial?

Good!  The CBA is terribly flawed.

 

Throwing away a season to get it and the league straightened out would actually be a great idea.

 

By the way it was much more Billy Hunter making things difficult more than anyone else.  He's gone now, should go smoother.  Hunter is a prick.  There was no conspiracy to get LeBron a ring, come on.  That's a bitter loser kind of thought.  Miami worked things perfectly.  That pissed off smaller markets because it exposed poor team management (again) and they wanted legislation in place to prevent them from having to actually run their teams correctly.  They want the money but with no work.  It wasn't any frickin' conspiracy - please.
