Spurs Owner Peter Holt Draws Ire Of NBPA

More wonderful nuggets of the exploding animosity between owners and the players union are coming forth by the second after Thursday night's failed mediated negotiating session, but perhaps none more explosive than this, if it is indeed true:

The NBPA isn't happy with Spurs' owner Peter Holt. Source says he's slowing talks and told the players, "You haven't felt enough pain yet."

This sort of thing sounds a little too much like spin to take the source at face value, but I believe the intention was there. It's not that they want the NBPA to feel more pain, it's that the owners think with more pain, the players will back down more.
