Another interesting column from Gordon Edes here, a relatively in-depth and revelatory interview with Gene Orza. It’s clear from the story that Orza cares only about the letter of the CBA, and not about any greater PR issues, nor about the game as a whole. Once and for all we should understand that Orza, Fehr, et. al are businessmen, not romanticists.
