When it comes down to it, the owners are being just as equally greedy as the players, that's why there is no resolution. Anyone that blames one side over the other is drinking the koolaid. It takes at least one agreeable party to get a deal done, and we have none. The demands on both sides are understandable to a certain degree, but they are not directly tied.
I personally feel like the richest teams benefited the most from the past CBA. They got a huge reduction in payroll for the same product and collected a higher percentage of revenue compared to the pre-Cap era. The Cap was put in place to help the poorer teams, but it did the exact opposite. It's like letting rich people design tax policy, I'm sure they'll make it fair and beneficial to all parties (sarcasm).
