Second part though, think about. Why would the players go on strike before the playoffs? Its a huge chunk of yearly revenue. For every buck they cost the owners, they cost themselves far far more. For every playoff dollar lost, the owners lose 43 cents - expenses, the players lose 57%. The escrow accounts would be hit to the tune of 30% or more. The players would never strike in that instance.
Cause the players hit the jackpot doing it in 1992. The players had received all their money and the owners were still in the red. Right before the playoffs is the best time to strike.
