08:13 AM ET 10.25 | A new owner has reportedly lined up somewhere in the middle between the hawks and doves. Pistons owner Tom Gores is "on the fence" when it comes to the NBA lockout, according to a Los Angeles Times story. League executives are forbidden by the NBA from speaking about the labor dispute, but the Times surveyed front-office executives, league officials, players, attorneys and others close to the game to get a sense of where the owners stand. Gores is among six owners who fell under the heading "on the fence," with the comment: "Another new owner likely to side with the hawks." The "hawks" are owners seeking no more than a 50-50 split of basketball-related income and are willing to wait it out.

"we don't really know, but someone told us that someonme said this just might be possible... or not. But we're going ahead and writing it anyway whether it's true or not, or correct, because we have nothing factual to write about" kind of story.

Man fouk the fence. He who is not with the players is against the players... of course he's hardliner... as for Sarver and Gilbert I don't know where to begin. Them two owners need to get outta the kitchen!
