    It was Stern's job as the neutral-mediator to make sure the two
    parties agreed to get the season started on time.

    News Flash
    The owners & players did not want to take this to court....
    both parties wasted 4 months depending on STERN to reach a
    conclusion with the next party.
    He's not a neutral mediator. He works for the owners.

    Not really, if the entire negotiation process was up to the owners they would have never moved above 47% of the BRI for the players. David Stern is kind of advisor for the owners, but I guess he also cares about the players' business, at least a bit.

    EPSN source: the owners are willing to make some more concessions and there is an once-again-revised offer for the players, however, if this proposal was rejected the NBA will consider canceling the entire 2011/12 season.
