Vegito Blue -
Yeah I heard they wanted to start on Christmas Day or just before Christmas?
they have to give two months notice of a start date. so if they announced right now it would be Dec. 16th start date. Ralistically, it looks like anywhere from Jan - April. the owners have to sort out the CBA with a bunch of BLM crybaby millionaire faggots.
"First, the players' union and the league must come to an agreement on how to manage the expected drop in revenue from the pandemic. This will largely center on what the salary cap looks like, perhaps for the next two seasons.
The most likely outcome right now is an agreement that keeps the salary cap artificially inflated, most likely at the same level it was during the 2019-20 season ($109 million per team). This would mitigate a bear market in free agency and prevent teams from facing huge unexpected luxury tax payments that would come with a steep cap drop.
To make sure the owners and players maintain the roughly 50-50 split of revenue as their current deal calls for, players probably will have to agree to give up a percentage of their paychecks throughout the season to help balance those books. Just how large a cut and just how to manage getting to that even split is going to be a central part of the talks.
Teams must also agree how to share money among themselves. Revenue sharing has been turned upside down with regulations in different states potentially altering the normal course of business.
For example, the state of Florida has lifted all COVID-19-related restrictions. That means the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat -- two teams typically lower on the revenue-generating scale -- could legally fill their arenas, while normally high-earning teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers might not be allowed to have any fans in attendance, due to California's ongoing restrictions."
