Theres also a contract that signed called the CBA that serves as the umbrella for all player contracts. Player contracts are susceptible to change under subsequent CBA's. So, trying to say the owners are moving the chains on contract terms "just because they want to" is awfully disingenuous. They have the right to do that considering, right now, the league is not operating under any CBA.

Unethical? Probably. A shameless power grab that seems to happen when each CBA expires? Yup.

But some sort of lawless breach? Nope.
