It Is Now Crunchtime In CBA Talks

The players have more than signaled they'll go along with a 50-50 BRI split --a $3 billion concession over 10 years-- as long as they get some tweaks on system issues, like the luxury tax and MLE.  Their lawyer has apologized to David Stern for his "plantation" remarks. And the owners have moved off their ultimatum at least for now, agreeing to meet one more time in New York this afternoon.

So what could go wrong as the two sides go into what could be overtime in the championship series?  A lot, but as long as they're talking, and they are, hope springs eternal.  Adrian Wojnarowski tweets "owners have green-lit Stern to make minor concessions in system. Players, however, want more than minor changes."
