Despite ominous statements from prominent players like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant about how the NBA’s new TV deal will affect collective bargaining, former commissioner David Stern said Wednesday night he believes the league will avoid a work stoppage in 2017.

“I think that our players are very smart and successful and they have hired what seems to be a smart and successful litigator,” Stern told CBSSports.com. “Our owners are smart and successful and have got Adam Silver, an accomplished litigator, too. And I have no doubt that they’re going to work it out.”
