Report: High-profile NBA players warning other players about costs of not playing

Several NBA superstars banded together at the end of the season last month. With this support, the President of the National Basketball Players Association, Chris Paul, and the union have signed a contract with the owners for a resume format.
But Kyrie Irving is reportedly leading a group of players who are resistant to the plan. Their concerns vary - from security to living conditions at Disney World to discomfort while playing before tackling racist injustices.
Now the big names are repeating their case.

I get concerns from tough players. It appears that the union has not properly assessed its members' wishes from the start (not that every player has made it easy to understand their priorities).
But the top-class players are right: there is a lot of money at stake - this season and beyond.
The owners could terminate the collective agreement by force majeure if the season is canceled. At this point all bets are closed. Even without this drastic measure, there is no guarantee that the NBA will start punctually in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic next season.
At the moment there is an opportunity to earn a lot of money. Players should think long and hard before bypassing it.
