NPBA rejects owners’ offer, begin to disband as union

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA players rejected the league’s latest offer Monday and began disbanding the union, likely jeopardizing the season.

“We’re prepared to file this antitrust action against the NBA,” union executive director Billy Hunter said. “That’s the best situation where players can get their due process.”

He said players were not prepared to accept the NBA Commissioner David Stern’s ultimatum, saying they thought it was “extremely unfair.”

Stern had urged players to take the deal on the table, saying it’s the best the NBA can offer and warned that decertification is not a winning strategy.
