David Stern, Derek Fisher Vow To Keep NBA Lockout Talks Out Of Media

The central news from Wednesday's NBA lockout talks between David Stern, Derek Fisher and the other top-level officials from the league and players' union was that neither side would be talking about the talks or the state of negotiations in the media. Neither official would characterize the actual substance of talks on Wednesday, and didn't offer specifics on when the parties would meet again.

Fisher did, however, let a little news loose. From NBA.com's Steve Aschburner:

Again, no new formal proposals were made -- there have been none since June, though Fisher said they covered topics "from A to Z" Wednesday.

While they probably need to cover topics from A to Z another two dozen times in that many days, and openness to negotiate is good. Comprehensive new proposals may not be worth the trouble; everyone in the room knows these issues like the back of their hands, so incremental progress on smaller chunks could be a better recipe for success. (Let us pray.)
