I think you are missing one of the players points.
Look back to all the contracts signed from July 1-Sept 15, especially all of the ones signed last minute. No other league operates that way. Other leagues lockouts happen before free agency, before players are signed to contracts that are going to be paid out at a much lower percentage.
The players are also trying to break the precedent of the owners signing players to contracts that they can't afford to pay and then simply rolling them back each time the owners decide the system that they designed isn't working.
