After adjusting last night’s proposal, David Stern suggested the NBA would play a 72-game season beginning December 15, should the union accept their latest and most likely best offer. The playoffs and NBA finals would likely each be pushed back a week, according to Adam Silver
“We have made our revised proposal and we’re not planning on making another one,” Stern said.
My take: This is great PR by NBA and Stern. He not only gave the public a timeline and a roadmap to a 72 game season, but he makes the players look like dicks if they don’t sign their proposal.
