There is plenty of things going on at this point.  The owners are dug in at 50-50 and players at 52-48.  Close to 50 players had a conference call early this week to discuss desertification.  That maybe the only little bit of leverage that the players have.  Some sources insist that at this time it makes little sense to go through the desertification process. There is a little hope that a deal could be struck this weekend. Someone will have to budge, who will blink first? stay tuned. Follow @nbablogsnet on twitter for updates all day long.!/nbablogsnet
