Actually an interesting article from Mr. Berri. He describes the lockout situation as one in which the owners are "extorting" the players. He also discusses an idea I raised in an earlier fanpost or fanshot - why can't the players just start their own league?
His idea is for cities to be the owners. Fascinating angle - government-run sports franchises.
The bottom line is that Berri recognizes the fact that the players have leverage here given the increasing popularity of professional basketball. In this situation, can the owners really force the players to pay for their management / ownership failures?
