Decision day: Union meets Monday to discuss offer

MIAMI (AP) — Decision day for NBA players may have arrived. And on the eve of perhaps the biggest meeting of the lockout, the league took its talking points to the players and public.

The players’ association will meet in New York on Monday morning, a session that could lead to the end of the lockout or send it into a bigger tailspin. Representatives from all 30 teams are expected, as are other players, to examine and discuss a seven-page summary of the NBA’s latest collective bargaining proposal to the union.

The proposal, which was obtained by The Associated Press, was dated Friday and addressed to union executive director Billy Hunter. Some who will be in the NBPA meeting said Sunday they had not yet seen it, creating some confusion over what exactly is on the table.

And the loudest voice telling them to take it is David Stern’s.

The NBA commissioner sent a memo to players Sunday urging them to “study our proposal carefully, and to accept it as a fair compromise of the issues between us.”
