Speaking Thursday before an appearance at the University of Connecticut, his alma mater, Allen said he doesn't want to have to sit out a season this late in his career, but believes the issues are important to the future of the game. 
"Nobody wants to miss a year," he said. "But I'm prepared to do what the team needs me to do, what my players association, players union team, what they need me to do, because we want to make sure we get the right deal for us."
Seems like both sides are pretty dug in. Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck expressed something similar back in July. What are your thoughts? Who do you side with? Comment below.

    The players are the only ones in the right in all of this. Why should they have to bail out the owners for not knowing how to run a franchise??

    Players are completely in the WRONG. Owners have the RIGHT as the OWNERS to decide what they want to pay and who they want to pay it to. Period. Its their money to spend so is up to them to do with it as they please. Nobody can actually believe they are worth that much money to play a sport or any other job for that matter.

    Sports are entertainment, period. No one bitches when an actor makes $20 million for a movie. Why should it be different for an athelete?

    Players need to realize and all us ardent fans need to be honest, every year the next great come joins the league. The NBA could reboot with young players the fans would fill the stands and the level of competition in 3-4 years would be on todays par........... along with all the broke or nearly broke players returning for a cut in pay.........see Latrell
