The sticking point is the players received 57% of league revenue on the previous collective bargaining agreement, but the owners are offering a 50 50 split at best and the players don't want to reduce that much. But the thing is, 50% would still be one of the best deals in pro sports
You are leaving out some key elements.

1)The players came down to like 52 or 53 % because they understand the economy has changed since the last CBA. That roughly came out to something like a half a billion dollars.

2) The 50-50 deal offered by the owners wasn't REALLY 50-50...it was based on certain criteria being met, and the truth is over half the owners did NOT like the deal and didn't want the players to take it. The 50-50 deal and it's "deadline" was just a tactic by Stern and the NBA. They knew that wasnt gonna fly.
