NBA Labor Problems
The NBA lockout has been underway for some time now and the commissioner has cancelled the first few weeks of the season and the labor problems don't seem to be getting better. The biggest problem for a lot teams and definitely the players is the amount of money they are receiving. The dilemma is that the NBA is full of great athletes, but it is classified by the superstars that make the team great. And those superstars think they should be paid a higher amount than the players not making the big plays. The owners are trying to even out the amount of money that the players receive. That's a real problem for the big name players and it will make them hold out until they can get more money. Some of the small name teams that don't ever do much might have to be shut down and more money will have to be made by the other teams to pay the superstars more money. There's no guarantee though that the teams not shut down will do well in the economy that we are in right now. The big time players might just have to sit out a while and accept the pay cuts and play the game that they love.
