Hear me out...Since both sides cannot agree on monies.. They should simply give the cash in question to a different charity every year the money is available. I recommend the Shriner's Hospital to start. Players and owners are all millionaires and certainly don't need it. So many people would benefit. Most people I know are done with the NBA because of the greed. This may help to get fans back. No more fighting acting like spoiled arses. Help humanity.. They are gross human beings...
