NBA.com's Steve Aschburner thinks Kevin Garnett deserves some blame for the Players Union not accepting the owners offer yesterday.
Here's a brief exchange Aschburner had with a Twitter follower this morning:
Kevin Garnett's contract triggered the last lockout. His input Tues, w/ Kobe & others, might have extended this one.
@Kileraben Garnett's partly to blame for the last lockout? Rly? It falls on the one who gave him that contract. Not overpaid for deal anyway
Always said he was never overpaid. But his contract did trigger last lockout. Undeniable. He didn't do anything wrong … then.
I guess Aschburner is on the side of ownership. As an employee of NBA.com, doesn't he work for the league?
The union sent this letter to players this morning, updating them of yesterday's negoatiating session. There's also a reference to a players-only meeting this weekend. Might that meeting be used to gauge the temperature of the masses? Are they really willing to lose games?
