@KBergCBS: “Stern to fans: “I say that we tried awfully hard. We made, in our view, concession after concession.
Silver: What’s separated us over the past two days are not economic issues, but the system.”
By the looks of it, the BRI split is not the only issue in this current lockout.
“Despite extensive efforts, we have not been able to reach a new agreement with the players’ union that allows all 30 teams to be able to compete for a championship while fairly compensating our players,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver.
Stern later went on to say that if the system issue were ironed out, the economic problems would fall in place. Another glimmer of hope came when the Commissioner told reporters that both sides will still be in “communication.”
