NBA meeting broken; strike set for April 2
NEW YORK (AP) - Negotiations for a new contract between the National Basketball Association and its players association were broken off after the first meeting in more than two weeks lasted just 24 minutes and produced angry exchanges by both sides.
‘‘The players are not prepared to address in any meaningful way the current problems of the league and said they were firm on an April 2 strike deadline,” David Stern, the NBA’s executive vice president for business and legal affairs, said following Tuesday’s abbreviated session.
"No purpose would be served under the circumstances to continue meeting," said Commissioner I.arry O’Brien.
O'Brien said the players’ strike threat, delivered officially for the first time Tuesday, was "a stunning and disturbing development."
The commissioner, in a message to the league's Board of Governors, said he had opened the meeting by asking I.arry Fleisher, the union’s general counsel, to clarify his comments to the media regarding the strike deadline.
“Mr. Fleisher responded unequivocal)’ that the players would
not agree to any proposal addressing the league’s financial problems which would take effect prior to 1967 at the expiration of the Robertson settlement agreement,” O’Brien said in his message to the clubs.
The Robertson settlement gives free agent players the right to sign with any team. Part of the club owners’ contract proposal would set a salary cap for each team and would bar any club which exceeds that limit from signing free agents.
“I advised Mr. Fleisher and his colleagues that the NBA would not enter into any new collective bargaining agreement which did not address the league’s current financial problems,” said O’Brien.
The commissioner’s message to the Board said Charles Grantham, a member of the union's negotiating team, had said the NBA's financial problems were the problems of the owners and need not be a concern of the players.
"It was a very short meeting,” said Fleisher. "We discussed philosophical differences. Philosophically, we are as far apart as l<os Angeles is to New York.”
In the course of the meeting, Fleisher could be heard shouting.
"There really wasn’t great animosity," Fleisher said. “It was a difference of opinion. I thought it might be worse."
Asked about the shouting, Fleisher said. I have a tendency to get excited.”
Fleisher said the union was concerned by an attempt by the league to change its free agent system.

The Smithson Valley Rangers dropped their opening day baseball game to the Somerset Bulldogs Tuesday 12-2, but coach Stan Irvine says he’s not worried.
“There were too many bright spots,” he said. “We had surprises from Jeff Hastings at pitcher and Ray Reyes at short stop that were pleasant and considering that most of the team just finished basketball, I can’t be that disappointed. We’ll come around.”
Joe Freeman took the loss for SV allowing seven walks in the first inning and a half. Then Hastings came in. “He did great,” said Irvine. “He had four innings of no hit baseball.”
The Rangers had six hits to IO for the Bulldogs and did not score until the fourth and sixth innings. Both runs came on singles from Freeman. The Bulldogs scored one in the first, eight in the second and three in the sixth.NB tennis wins match
The New Braunfels Unicom tennis team took an 11-6 victory over San Marcos, Smithson Valley and Canyon Tuesday in what was meant to be just a dual match.
“It was kind of a mess,” said coach David Moeller. “Four teams ended up playing a double dual. But, generally we played well."
The best players for NB were Greg Bender, the doubles team of Trade Winegar and Julie Chints and David Pfeuffer who won a 6-1, 6-2 victory over San Manics’ Val Almendez.Five locals named to all-district
