I'm for the NBA, I hope they win. The players make way to much money, no players should make over 5 million a year. Its time to take the game back so
some of middle class people can buy a ticket without setting in the nose bleed section, it would be real nice to set down below without paying $150.00 for a ticket. So you go NBA don't give in. Shut it down if you have to but we as fan can't pay no more for tickets. A Jazz Fan and loving them.!!!!!!

No more than $5 million? Do you know how much money these players are responsible for generating? If you can't afford a $150 ticket don't buy one. I know I can't, but there are plenty of people who do.

I agree with woodmaster6225.

Ditto on hoping the NBA owners win this monetary fiasco.

The current system won't allow fans for many teams to ever see an NBA title. Too easy to buy it, like Miami's big three has tried to do.

Kudos to Dallas for winning one down in Miami to MAYBE put a crimp in that.

Today's economy isn't correcting itself any time soon. Skyrocketing player salaries could keep ticket prices skyrocketing, too.

So, let's reign in those greedy, high-paid, pampered jocks and level the playing field for ALL teams with a hard salary cap!
