What is the so-called "greater good" for the players? Please explain that to me in detail.
Th PA is fighting so that they don't have to cave in every time the CBA expires.

Let's say the PA uses your logic to accept the deal: "We might lose a whole season of salary ($1.89B). Therefore, we will accept any cuts in future salaries as long as they are not greater than $1.89B". End result: PA accepts salary cuts.

Next time the CBA expires, the league threatens to cancel the season again. The PA compares the year of salary they might lose to the salary cuts demanded by owners. The PA accepts any salary cuts as long as they are not greater than the year of salary they might lose. End result: PA accepts salary cuts.

The league can simply repeat this strategy every time and get players to accept salary cuts.
