Person in the room assures me that no agreement has been reached. They're about to hit the five-hour mark here in New York.

I will be happy if Dave Checketts is right. He is very close to Stern. But I don't have that information yet.

Aldridge is on the NBA's payroll, if not indirectly, so he's obviously not going to leak anything. Neither are those inside.
I honestly think they're performing their due diligence for the fans. With all of the side posturing going on, the PR machine has been working overtime lately. If you read between the lines, the Union has positioned themselves as the group who gave the owners an extra 300 million in a year as a concession so they could have more job security (who wouldn't want that?). The owners, hardliners anyway, have attempted to sell the paying public on the whole decertification scare, attempting to sell that as a bunch of greedy players who see basketball as a means to a paycheque.

The only way this thing gets done is if Stern can sell the Hardline guys on the small victories logic. "Look at the progress we've made from the last CBA. We've hammered them again, and we'll continue to position ourselves for more hammering when this CBA expires." If he can sell them on that then we've got two months of shitty basketball to look forward to!!!!

Being told more and more this so far looking like a disappointing day regarding movement on a deal after yesterday's optimism.

In short:

Union taking the new revised deal to player reps to think about it over the weekend. Theyre going to meet with NBA again MON to tell them to fuck off or accept. Looking like the last deal.

If they accept deal on MON, 72 game season starting dec 15. If they dont MON, then Stern drops the hammer
