LOS ANGELES -- NBA commissioner David Stern and union director Billy Hunter want peace instead of a looming labor war, but both know that it will be easier said than done. Speaking to the media before the NBA's All-Star Saturday, both Stern and Hunter began to outline what it's going to take to avert a lockout after the 2004-05 NBA season.

Stern said that the league has proposed ideas for the players to look over and that he was expecting a concrete set of responses in the next few weeks.
