     Do NBA owners seek to roll back existing contracts, imposing a pay cut on all 450 players as part of a new deal?

    "I don't know," Stern said coyly. "Hey, Adam. There's a question for you ..."

    Adam, of course, was Adam Silver, the NBA's deputy commissioner, point man on collective bargaining and jockey of Stern's horse, which he seems to regard as Secretariat-like in its chances to throttle the competition in these labor talks.

    "Yes," Silver said, point blank.

    And there you have it: On-the-record confirmation that the NBA is looking to do to its players what the NHL did in 2005.

    I figured that with all these ridiculous contracts being signed lately. These guys should take a pay cut... they should take part of their pay and invest money into a new league that is fair and doesn't favor big market teams and players and doesn't have incompetent refs who call way too many touch fouls.

    Or have a lockout.

    good riddance to bad rubbish. I hope when sports lock themselves out, ESPN becomes a book club or something more useful to society. We won't have this instant gratification of a huge flow of streaming sports data to keep us busy, and we can go back to worrying about worldly events. Until then....go blazers!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
