The players came up with a complete proposal. They just didn't base their proposal off the proposal presented by the owners, which is where this schism has appeared. Both sides want their own proposal to be the starting point of negotiations, neither side seems particularly interested in compromising.

As far as the time table thing, both sides are a fault. They had 7 years to get it together. It's not like this displeasure at the current CBA sprung up in the last couple months.
If they offer to keep the CBA going and the owners accept, then the players can strike at any point in the season, and would instantly have all the leverage in the world.
