This post comes despite recent news the GOAT is impeding progress on the BRI at the CBA talks. If you don’t understand what that sentence means, then I’m jealous of you.
The owners’ faction includes between 10 and 14 owners and is being led by Charlotte’s Michael Jordan, according to a person who has spoken with the owners. That group wanted the players’ share set no higher than 47 percent, and it was upset when league negotiators proposed a 50-50 split last month.
According to the person who spoke with the owners, Jordan’s faction intends to vote against the 50-50 deal, if negotiations get that far. Saturday’s owners meeting was arranged in part to address that concern.
A majority of the 29 owners are believed to support a 50-50 deal, but they are reluctant to move further.
“There’s no one who’s interested in going above 50 percent,” said the person who has spoken with the owners.
Riddick Bowe, another Bed-Stuy Boxing Club alumnus, and Evander Holyfield in one of the best rounds of heavyweight boxing you’ll ever see. Holyfield’s face after taking Bowe’s uppercut at the start of the round is priceless. You can see him losing and recovering his senses in the space of about a quarter second. Bowe tries too hard to finish Holyfield off. He loses some power and tires himself out. Meanwhile, Holyfield’s response is brilliant. He leans on Bowe to help Bowe smother his work and gradually perks back up to the extent that he gets on his toes and bashes Bowe about to the extent that he ends the round on top. Bowe fought Holyfield three times, finally winning the series 2-1 in November 1995 with an 8th round TKO.
