If you compare their recent offers to their insulting offer of July, then yeah, there have been tons of concessions.
I disagree. Compare it to the other sports leagues. It's all about perspective. Why is everyone caught up in that offer that was months ago?

50/50: better than MLB and NFL, equal to NBA.
Make whole: pays out face value, when face value is not legally binding.
Absorb make whole: removes most (66%) of 13% from player's share.
Revenue sharing: $200M > NBA $180M

Players take back a year or two on the FA stuff, deal done.
