There may be no Milwaukee Bucks basketball under the Christmas tree this year.
According to ESPN, the NBA and its players' association cannot agree on a start date for the upcoming 2020-2021 season. The league would like to see the season start before Christmas and end just before the Olympics. The players' association so far are balking at that offer, countering with a mid-January start. The league says it could lose a half-billion dollars by waiting until then while the players say it is too quick of a turnaround after the bubble popped in Orlando just under two months ago.
ESPN suggests the strife could lead to the collective bargaining agreement being ripped up.
