MIAMI — Decision day for NBA players is looming. What that decision will be remains anyone's guess.

The NBA Players Association will meet in New York on Monday morning, a session that could bring the lockout closer to an end or send it into a bigger tailspin. Representatives from all 30 teams are expected, as are other players.

They'll discuss the latest offer from the NBA and could choose from a wide range of options, including taking it to the rank-and-file for a vote or flatly turning it down. Out of that meeting, the answer to this key question — "Will there be a season?" — may finally come.

The NBA wants a 72-game season starting Dec. 15. For that, a handshake deal likely would have to be in place this week.
