Players Miss First Paychecks of Lockout
Tuesday was the day NBA players were to have received their first paychecks of the 2011-12 season. With no games being played and no collective bargaining agreement in place, that didn’t happen.
According to CNBC, the average NBA player lost $220,000 as a result of the stalemate with the owners.
Tuesday was also the 138th day of the NBA lockout and the day after the players’ union rejected the owners’ offer, and announced its intention to disband and file an antitrust lawsuit against the league.
