The Sun has done an excellent job commemorating the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis Browns becoming the Baltimore Orioles ("The Orioles: Sixty Years in Baltimore," March 30). It was a class act for the Orioles to invite former shortstop Billy Hunter to throw the ceremonial pitch on the exact date of the first home game. Billy Hunter's outstanding double-play partner at second base was the late Bob Young, the only native Marylander to arrive in Baltimore with the former Browns.

When owners win K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune The easy answer is whenever the league wins. That the two sides spent all last week negotiating the split of basketball-related income and then, on the day Commissioner David Stern announced cancellations, huge gaps on all system issues were revealed suggests it will be a while. The owners aren't losing this one. The comments of Stern and deputy commissioner Adam Silver about all 30 teams needing a chance to win a title means increased revenue sharing and stiffer luxury tax penalties will be in place, even if, technically, a hard salary cap isn't.

NEW YORK - -An incident that embarrassed the Washington Wizards franchise and disgraced two of its players moved closer to resolution Wednesday, when NBA commissioner David Stern suspended guards Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton for the remainder of the season after they displayed handguns during a locker room dispute last month. Stern reached his decision after an hourlong, face-to-face meeting with Arenas at the NBA offices. He later released a statement that said guns in an NBA workplace "would not be tolerated."

LAV VEGAS — Billy Hunter, the executive director of the National Basketball Players Assn., emerged last week from a meeting with one-tenth of his 400-plus locked out players. With NBA owners pushing hard on the idea they need to significantly slash payroll and institute a hard salary cap as a response to their claim 23 of 30 teams are losing money, Hunter's players appear headed to a fall — and perhaps winter — without paychecks. Player unity, then, is a crucial element of avoiding a salary free fall.

NBA Players Association executive director Billy Hunter said Wednesday that if he "had to bet on it," he would wager that the entire 2011-12 season would be wiped out by the lockout. "We're $800 million apart per year," Hunter told about 200 people during a seminar at a conference in Baltimore of the National Bar Association, an organization of predominantly African-American lawyers and judges. The union chief said NBA commissioner David Stern was being limited in negotiations by hard-line owners.

O h, no, am I here all alone? Actually, the world didn't end when the NBA locked its players out. The NBA didn't even end, even if it felt as if it were about to as darkness moved across the land. I have nothing against doomsday scenarios ... but if that's all that's out there, something had better be coming to an end, or it's just the media chasing its tail again. With months of this idiocy left, let's see how close we can come to some actual perspective: Who's pushing this, owners or players?

"I'm sure of it. They've done it in the past."
