It's one hell of a strategy. The union has decertified itself, and is now going to file an antitrust action against the NBA.The NBA Players Association has announced its intention to file a disclaimer of interest, essentially announcing it will decertify and file an anti-trust lawsuit against the league instead of accepting the league's proposed deal and continuing the NBA lockout. The news comes after all 30 player team representatives and a number of other players met on Monday to address the NBA's most recent proposal, which is outlined here.
IMHO, both the union and the team owners have bargained in bad faith, and the result is going to be that basketball players who are now in college are going to become used car salesmen, instead of pro ballplayers. The team owners will then be forced to recruit players from prisons, mental institutions, and Texas.
