A couple of big superstars decided to join the discussion on Friday. Move over Mo Evans, Etan Thomas and Derick Fisher. Time for the big boys to play a part.
Davis Stern is going to talk about the golden days of the NBA: Magic, Bird, Kareem, Isaiah and Doctor J. He will stress what a great time that was. He will say how important it is that the Superstars get theirs. Lebron and Dwade will be sitting there among the dime a dozen Leadership Council players such as Keyon Dooling and Matt Bonner. Players who could not hold up the 2 Superstars Jock Straps. 2 players no one cares about except maybe the city they play for (until their usefullness runs out) and their wife and kids.
Lebron and Dwades Agents will also be listening very carefully. They will get the cue from the Commissioner that he wants Lebron, Kobe, Dwade, Howard and the freak that plays for the Clippers to get the lions share. The Agent for John Wall and other future superstars will also be paying attention. They will be licking their chops and they are going to want theirs.
Billy Hunter doesn't know it now, but he is going to be walking into a storm on Friday that I do not know if he will be ready for. It won't be the NBA versus the NBPA. It will be the Superstars versus the rank and file.
Get ready because the war between the classes will start on Friday. Buckle your seatbelts.
Hopefully, there will be little bloodshed.
(I am of the opinion that their will be no serious discussions until the NBPA solves their differences between Billy Hunter and his Executive Committe (made up of 10 marginal players and 1 superstar), and the Superstar Player Agents.
