The NBA's owners and players are back at the negotiating table today in an effort to end the league's four-monhth-old lockout, but according to some sources, the talks may be dead on arrival thanks to one very prominent owner: the Charlotte Bobcats' Michael Jordan.

Jordan is said to be leading a group of 10-14 hardline owners who think the NBA has already offered too much to the players, in effect pulling the previous offer of a 50-50 split of basketball related income. Reports say Jordan's group initially wanted to give the players 37% of BRI (under the expired collective bargaining agreement they received 57%). Is the man who helped build the NBA getting ready to take the league down a very, very dark corner? Stay tuned.
