NBA Deputy Commish Adam Silver inadvertently spills the beans: "A few of our owners," Silver told reporters at the time, "remarked after the robust revenue discussion last night that we might want the assistant of the federal mediator for our revenue sharing discussions, as well." Silver also has cautioned that revenue-sharing talks have "in no way" impeded progress in talks with the players. But evidently the union disagrees. Well, no kidding... the union disagrees, after that comment by Silver? I never would have guessed.
