HoopsHype Walt Williams rumors

August 2, 2011 Updates

The owners, Williams believes, have an advantage, and the players should be aware of what they’re up against. “Most owners have other businesses that they derive income from,” he said. “But for the players, even your off-the court income comes from what you do on the court. The owners are tight. The players have to be prepared for the worst if it come to that.” But in the end, it will have to come down to reaching a compromise. “We fought tooth and nail, but in the end, we thought we came out with a good compromise,” Williams said of the 1998 lockout. “This time, just like with us, neither side is going to get everything they want. But they’re going to have to find something both sides can live with.” Washington Times
