    Basically the owners, Michael Smith explained it perfectly on Around The Horn(I don't remember if it was yesterday, or a couple of days ago).

    The owners focus on player-salaries, and make problems there, but that's not the fundamental problem of the NBA.

    It's revenue-sharing, if they create a decent model of revenue-sharing, all the smaller-teams can run a decent organization, without a lot of change to the salaries.

    All of this mess, is down to the owners, and management, because they created this weird 'over-pay' culture for promising, or mysterious players(that only pan-out half the time), and have shown no interest in great talent.

    The owners want more money, while the players want to keep the old Collective Bargaining Contract, where they'll continue to earn a lot of money.

    It comes down to salary distribution. If the owners get their way, you'll expect the player's earnings to drop significantly.

    South Beach, Joe Johnson, Gilbert Arenas, the Lakers, the Mavericks, and #1: RASHARD LEWIS. That's my opinion.

    Lebron James and the Whole Miami Heat Organization
