Tuesday Is Next Big Day In Labor Talks

David Stern made the media rounds on Thursday, explaining the owners' position in the NBA lockout and stressing the importance of next week's talks with federal mediator George Cohen. The two sides will meet separately with Cohen on Monday and then together on Tuesday. Adding importance to the talks are board meetings for the owners later in the week.

"It's time to make the deal," Stern told Mike Francesa. "If we don't make it on Tuesday, my gut ... is that we won't be playing on Christmas Day."

Meanwhile, Stefan Bondy offers his take on what the owners' latest proposal would mean for the Nets' future.
