WASHINGTON— Commissioner David Stern says the NBA and union might have to make "some adjustments" to the labor contract when it expires in two years, but he foresees no "doomsday scenario" for the league because of the current economic crisis.
Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kevin McHale said recently the NBA had entered its own "Fannie Mae Freddie Mac era" of subprime loans" because of player salaries. He added that players will need to make substantial concessions at the bargaining table.
I saw a brief note in the Star, and linked to the more complete article in the Hartford Courant.
The most surprising thing here is David Falk (an agent) saying the league could "shut down for a year or two."
