Yeah, I don't think they'll kill a season. The players have to know this hurts them waaaay more than the owners. They'll bluff as much as they can and maybe sacrifice one paycheck, but they're the losers in this fight.
The stars who make their millions will be fine and resist, but not the ~40% of the league making the minimum up to a million a year (57% made $2M or less last year).
Those guys will only have a few short years to bank cash to get them a decent nest egg. They lose a year and it's huge. It's those guys that will push the union to cave.
Be interesting how eager those guys are to give up a year for the superstars again...
