NBA commissioner David Stern says that there has been no significant progress made in collective bargaining talks over the summer. Stern has also said that he wants to cut player salaries by one- third so the league can “get profitable”. The executive director of the NBA players association, Billy Hunter says that “the league’s stance could lead to a work stoppage”.

Hopefully both sides come to a mutual agreement, even though the NBA almost always wins these battles. Another NBA lockout would devastate fans.
