DRAFT, Don’t Talk about a DRAFT

 But what will happen to the draftees?

By Joe Vitiello

One topic dominated NBA talks these past four months; the lockout. For many reasons, the league and the players association have not been able to come to an agreement and end the labor dispute. The main issue is on the distribution of Basketball Related Income (BRI) amongst the owners and the players. The last labor agreement had the players sharing 57% leaving the owners to split the remaining 43%. There have been reports the owners want to go down to a 50-50 split while the players have offered a 53-47 split. At the surface, 3% does not seem to be a huge difference. However, when last season's BRI was $3.8 billion you’re left with a pretty hefty number (114 million to be exact).
