Actually it is possible for the league to have a cap without a union, although there would be a lot of legal fighting over it. The legal argument would be whether the league's [reasonable] goal of promoting competitive parity amongst the teams through the implementation of a cap is outweighed by possible negative impact on the player labor market.
