Report: NBA union reps meeting set for Monday morning


Well, at least we won’t have to wait long for Armageddon.

The NBA players’ union team representatives are set to meet in New York at 9 a.m. Monday morning, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune (talking about Wolves rep Anthony Tolliver).

Derek Fisher, Billy Hunter and union leadership will present David Stern and the owners latest ultimatum, er, offer to the players’ representatives — and don’t expect a positive spin. Right now the entire tide of the union seems to be turning on the offer, and while some guys just want to get back to playing (if it went to a secret ballot I think it would pass but many agents think it would not) the key decision makers and union reps seem opposed.

And then… either more talks, or the owners reset offer with a side of union decertification. Pray for more talks, because the reset and decertification is the path to Armageddon.
