A STERN WARNING ON NBA LABOR DEAL AS TALKS STALL
Published May 25, 1995
NBA Commissioner David Stern said last night that the league and the NBPA "are far apart with no sign" that a new CBA is near. Asked about main point of contention, Stern replied, "There's really only one. The last proposal by the players reflected the belief that the owners should not make any money." Stern said he would "have a hard time selling that to the owners." At the beginning of this season the NBA and NBPA agreed on a no-strike, no lockout deal through this year, even though the CBA had expired. That agreement is nearing an end. Stern: "Things are far apart. .... There's nothing concrete that would lead me to believe we're close to an agreement" (AP/ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/25).
