Now that an agreement has been reached how will the billing work. Does anyone know the details and how it works. Those that had the NHL the year the season started so late, how did they charge for that?

What year did they start late? The 2005 season was just cancelled, not abbreviated.

If all goes according to plan, we lose 20% of the season. So I could therefore see the NBALP being 20% cheaper in price than normal. Just my own guess FWIW!

I too would like to know when the billing will start so I can cancel LP. I just can't bring myself to hand money over to the NBA players or owners. Not at this point anyway.

LP can be canceled anytime prior to the first game, which I guess will be Christmas Day. It's not necessary to wait until it is billed.

nba.com and nbatv will have a schedule release show at 7pm tonight 12/6. This will be the 66 game regular season.

I imagine They will also give details on nba league pass.

ok, the nba schedule has been released. some teams will be happy some not, my team sixers begins with a 6 game west trip and ends with 5 st on road.


But very happy to have basketball back,

also they condensed 66 games into 4 months, littearlly the nba teams will have lost a total of 16 regular season games plus the preseason thats all this lockout will effect.

i noticed not every team will play each other once on road and home. EX i see we play the lakers at home but not on road. Plus we won't be playing conference or divison games no more then 2 or 3 games.

Still no details about the League Pass... very curious to what they will do for their hardcore fans who endured the lockout and everything else.

You're just rewarding rich owners. Look at the SF 49ers. They want Santa Clara residents to pay more taxes to build a new stadium. I say let the rich owners pay.

My guess is, the NBA is waiting for the offical new CBA to be signed and once that happens training camps will open on Friday.

So once that happens, then expect league pass to be announced. I be shocked if they dont start taking orders next week.

I was just on the D* website and still don't see any pricing information for NBA League Pass. I would hope they wouldnt stick it to the fans with a huge price tag.

D* is only going to charge what it takes to make a profit off the package. I guess it's up to the NBA how much they think it should be and what they charge D* to carry it.

Do the owners own the arena? No. Do the owners keep all revenue associated with said arena? No. Are those games the only thing that happens in that arena? Probably not. They RENT the building or stadium as a tenant. I've never understood why people think owners should pay for an arena the city can use for many other purposes other than a sports teams games and those teams probably see not a dime or the majority of that income.

the NBA should make it free this year to make for missing all the games so far.

:lol: Free for "missing" 16 games per team?

...probably because if I live in the city I may have no use at all for the arena and if I do want to use it than I would still have to pay to use it twice through taxes and tickets. It's not a public park.

Public-private partnerships are a scam to communities. They use government force to take from everyone to benefit a few. If a new hundreds of millions of dollar arena was truly profitable then they would be 100% privately financed every time. The "owners" aren't stupid. They know voters and city councils are stupid and will give them the money.

My taxes fund the electric and water company, and I still have to pay to use it. Local cities help fund things like zoos and all, but if you go you still have to pay to use it. Animal control is paid for with taxes but if I want an animal from there I have to pay them for it also. And I doubt the zoos or animal control generate profits for the city.

If I owned a team and someone pulled that crap on me I'd build my own arena/stadium, buy all the land around it for parking, take every event I can out of the city owned venue (since i guess in your view there would be no reason to upgrade the current one) and since I own it all I wouldn't give the city one dime other than the property taxes and whatever other taxes I'd be responsible for. Then when you wonder why there's even more of a shortfall and your taxes go up even more the city officials can all explain it to you. Of course then I'm the mean rich owner unwilling to share what I own with everyone else....even though I bought it lock, stock, and barrel. Oh, and since I owned it all once I got sick of people in the city whining about how mean I am I could just take the team somewhere else and then you can really see how much benefit there was to the team being there.

The city generates revenue off arenas and stadiums which funds many things you use. You do benefit from it whether you believe so or not.
