The NBA lockout is at a rather dire stage because commissioner David Stern announced last week that regular season games will be cancelled Monday if the owners and players aren't able to reach an agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The two sides are meeting Sunday evening to further discuss with the players planning further discussions on Monday afternoon in Los Angeles.
"In his latest letter to NBA players, union prez Derek Fisher urges all players to attend Monday afternoon meeting in LA if at all possible," ESPN's Marc Stein tweeted on Sunday night. The letter also contained information saying Fisher and Chris Paul will tweet same "LET US PLAY" mantra seen from NFL players during the NFL lockout earlier this year.
There isn't any further information known regarding the big meeting, but there is a chance that the NBPA is looking to give its members an opportunity to vote on whichever "best offer" the NBA gives it tonight. Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick proposed that option earlier in the week and it seems to make sense, regardless of the outcome.
There will assuredly be more news related to Sunday evening's meeting -- and possibly Monday's -- as soon as it concludes.
