If I were him I'd be on the PA to hurry this **** up, because he stands to lose quite a bit of money and will be lucky to get another deal.
Yeah, it's curious how it works. I know a lot of the guys talk about fighting this battle for future players, but who doesn't believe the next CBA will be contentious (hopefully not at the level of this or the last one though)? The league and PA have shown a willingness to burn it down. They're fighting about how things will be for the next 5 years, that's all. This noble battle is a red herring IMO. So when you say a guy like Thornton loses out and its a little hard to see the rationale. I think I understand what he would say, I'm just not sure I believe the presumed result is really there.
