How arts viewing strategies help make sense of the NBA lockout

With the owner’s BRI demands only increasing, the players have retreated to the drawing board. Player representatives from all 30 teams have been asked to come to New York City, the epicenter of the talks, for a mandatory meeting. According to the union, they will not put the current deal to a vote. There also appears to be growing interest in dissolving the union through “decertification.” If that should occur (130 players petitioning the National Labor Relations Board and a 50-percent-plus-one majority voting in favor within 60 days thereafter), players would have the right to personally file antitrust lawsuits against the NBA.

This nuclear option is seen as the only means by which players can pump the brakes on the owners’ increasing demands, but the process is lengthy and could result in the cancellation of the entire season.

As it stands now, it’s probably more abstract than when it began.

Some Spurs fans might stick around, contemplating while focusing on the positives — the Mavericks haven’t hung their championship banner yet, and technically, Tim Duncan hasn’t started his final contract year. But other fans might mimic the steps of some museum goers when, try as they might, they just can’t “get” a work of art. That is, they may walk away and never look back. •
