    Update on NBA collective bargaining agreement negotiations


    Dear Vyb,

    As you may know, the NBA and National Basketball Players Association continue to negotiate but have not yet reached a new collective bargaining agreement. Without a new agreement in place, the league has canceled the remaining preseason games for the 2011-12 season, which had been scheduled through Oct. 28. Also, as the NBA announced, on Oct. 10 the league will have to cancel the first two weeks of the regular season if no agreement has been reached.

    You, as an MVP Season Ticket Holder, play an integral role in our Grizzlies family, and your loyalty and support is greatly appreciated. Please know that whether you have chosen to have your account credited with interest or to receive a refund, your investment with us remains fully protected. We will also continue to keep you informed of any developments in negotiations.

    Rest assured the NBA’s efforts remain focused on reaching a new collective bargaining agreement that is in the best interests of its teams, the players, our fans, and the game of basketball.

    If you have any questions, please contact your Account Executive. Thank you again for your continued support and loyalty.

    Sincerely,

    Greg Campbell
    President, Business Operations
    Memphis Grizzlies

    Is there still time to convince Mrs. Vyb that the season ticket savings could be better used as a long term investment in a classic Bentley?

    That's only half of it. The owners want the hard cap too or something very close to it.

    Lower prices? It took the Knicks 8 seasons of garbage teams before they lowered their prices a bit. Then they made the playoffs for the first time in 10 years and doubled prices. :facepalm:
