NBA TALKS TAKING SIMILAR LOOK TO MLB'S PROBLEMS
Published April 3, 1995
In Chicago, Sam Smith claims that the NBA's contract negotiations are "sounding familiar." "Now that baseball is fixing its problems, it's only appropriate that the NBA's negotiations on a new contract are dragging," writes Smith. Smith notes that the latest proposal from the union would give players the "equivalent of about 70 percent of the league's gross revenues under the previous formula for distributions." According to the NBPA, "that shows just how much the teams were hiding before" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/3).
