Yesterday, the NBA owners and NBA players made progress toward ending the lockout by negotiating system details. However, the two sides avoided the main sticking point: the basketball related income (BRI) split. Today, that is exactly what will be discussed.

The players, who received 57% of the BRI in the last CBA, want at least 52% this time. The owners, on the other hand, don’t want to go over 50%. Will one side budge? Can they agree on some sort of floating compromise? Stay tuned to find out.

Either way, today is a big day for those of us who want NBA basketball back on our televisions. Progress today could actually salvage an entire 82-game season. If the two sides can’t find a middle ground, things could go back to the drawing board.

What do you think is a fair split? Let us know in the comments below.
