No NBA Season?

Faced with a "take it or leave it" type of ultimatum from the league, the NBA players opted to leave it.
Union officials rejected the league's latest proposal that came with the threat of a worse offer, if the players didn't approve. Instead, the players union is planning to decertify and take its
fight with the league to court. The players are planning to file an antitrust lawsuit against the league.
NBA commissioner David Stern responded by calling the players actions "a charade," and says the entire season is in jeopardy. Stern says the union's action is "irresponsible," and says the
players are getting bad advice from union chief Billy Hunter.
Hunter says players will be represented in a class-action suit against the NBA by attorneys Jeffrey Kessler and David Boies, who were on opposite sides of the NFL labor dispute, Kessler working for the players, Boies for the league.
Tuesday marked the 138th day of the owners' lockout. All of the November games on the schedule have been lost, and more cancellations seem a certainty.
