Grim Times For The NBA and NFL

While the NFL seems to be closer to possibly ending its four month lockout, the light at the end of the NBA’s tunnel couldn’t seem any dimmer. During the last NFL negotiations, players and owners were able to finally settle on a rookie wage system. This doesn’t guarantee a final agreement but it is a huge step in the right direction. In the NBA, however, 11% of their workforce, totalling 114 employees, were terminated. Primarily in New York and New Jersey, the layoffs were across the board from nearly every division, including marketing, community relations, player programs, broadcasting and information technology. Were they a direct result of the now two-week lockout? Maybe not. But they’re definitely an indicator that what the NBA is spending surpasses what it’s actually making.
