The NBA Dribbled Out

And so it continues into this Halloween weekend.

NEW YORK —  Talks between the NBA’s owners and locked-out players  have ended for the day, and the elephant in the room the owners and  players had avoided until Friday — how to split revenue between the  sides — has turned out to be a troublesome issue, indeed. 
While  the two sides made major progress on the “system” issues, the split of  basketball-related income is still holding up a deal, sources close to  the situation told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard. 
Both sides are holding firm at their positions, with the owners still  seeking a 50-50 split of BRI and the players demanding a 52 percent  share. Players were guaranteed 57 percent in the previous collective  bargaining agreement.

You’ll notice the players are down to 52% from 53% last week. The owners haven’t budged from their earlier stance. I’m not taking sides, it’s just something I noticed. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go take a train into the city while trying to hide my tears.
