Is there dissension in both the owners and players ranks? It would seem that way after the collapse of talks on Friday.
In a series of tweets highlighted by RealGM, Heat owner Micky Arison seems to have distanced himself from other owners. A random NBA fan wrote on Twitter a message directed at Arison.
"Fans provide all the money you're fighting over," wrote the fan.
"Honestly u r barking at the wrong owner," replied Arison.
Meanwhile, Jason Whitlock of FOX Sports reports that Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter had a frank and candid discussion Friday after Fisher seemed to intimate that he'd be willing to settle at 50-50 while Hunter holds out for 52-45.
