BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Gordon says he doesn’t expect NBA players to give up the labor fight against the owners any time soon.
Gordon spoke with reporters about an hour before his alma mater, Indiana, took the court Saturday at Hoosier Hysteria.
Gordon said he has attended some negotiating sessions and that the owners currently appear to have the upper hand. Gordon says the players have continually made concessions but that players “won’t give up so easily.”
His comments come one day after Wizards center JaVale McGee told reporters that a few players were ready to fold in a lockout that has already led to the cancellation of the entire preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season.
