And what does that solve? Teams who lost money (or were close to it this last year) would not be better off. As the cap/floor go up, they're only increasing those losses.

When the PA is getting paid (as they would be if they extended the CBA by 1 season), what incentive do they have to give any concessions? No they wouldn't be able to strike as there would be a valid CBA, but that doesn't mean anything would get accomplished other than the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer, all while the players get their guaranteed monies.
