The players have a very good case if it goes to the courts and the owners won't even want to risk the potential outcomes. Decertification will force the end to this mess.
IMO, Either the PA folds , initiates a new offer, or the owners are prepared and willing to go the legal route. The owners are fully aware of the risks, possible outcomes, and probabilities of success. The owners are fully aware of the players next possible move and are negotiating with the idea that the PA could follow that road. If the sides are truly close why would the PA want to go down the decert lane? Simply for respect? If the sides aren't close than all bets are off.
