After meetings that lasted Friday and most of the day Saturday, the NBA and the players association have adjourned with no deal, but plan to continue talks in small groups on Monday and larger groups on Tuesday. There had been some optimism after several star players attended Friday's meetings and commissioner David Stern said the league would triple its revenue sharing pool and quadruple it by the third year of a new collective bargaining agreement.
However, two main sticking points remain: the revenue split and the cap system. The players have reportedly offered to move from their previous 57 to 53 percent, while the owners are said to be asking for around 46 percent. Each percentage point is worth about $40 million. "Huge gaps," remain between the two sides according to NBPA president Derek Fisher after seven hours of talks on Saturday.
"We're not near anything," Stern told reporters. "But wherever that is...
According to a Tweet from the New York Post's Joel Sherman, there is a growing sentiment that the Red Sox may allow general manager Theo Epstein to talk to the Cubs about their vacant GM position.
Wrote Sherman on Twitter: 'I am shocked, but in last 36 hrs every exec talk to says believe #Redsox will give permssion and Theo will go to #Cubs to be GM'

Sox chairman Tom Werner than added, "I...

CHESTNUT HILL -- Montel Harris rushed 22 times for 108 yards and became the all-time leading rusher in Boston College history but the Eagles could not overcome a 15-point second-half deficit in a 27-19 loss to Wake Forest Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium. Harris now has 3,735 yards, setting the new record on a 26-yard run in the fourth quarter that preceded BC's first touchdown.
In his second game back, tailback Harris looked strong despite not finding the end zone. His only miscue was a costly one as he fumbled at the Wake Forest 10-yard line midway through the third as BC was driving. Quarterback Chase Rettig completed 23-of-47 passes for 188 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Two weeks after he missed a potential game-winning 23-yard field as time expired against Duke, Eagles kicker Nate Freese was outstanding. He converted all three field goal attempts, including a career long 52-yard boot with eight seconds left in the...
