Thirty men, 30 opinions. The NBA owners presiding over the league's increasingly bitter lockout of players aren't united behind the idea that it's better to lose an entire season rather than accept a bad labor deal. For now, however, the hawks outnumber the more conciliatory owners, such as the Lakers' Jerry Buss, the New York Knicks' James Dolan, the Miami Heat's Micky Arison and the Dallas Mavericks' Mark Cuban. Billy Hunter, executive director of the players' union, said those four want to make a deal.

Times staff writer Tim Hubbard takes a weekly look at players, teams and trends that are constantly evolving over baseball's regular season: TIME TO STEAL Matt Harvey SP | New York Mets The 24-year-old right-hander has the ability to anchor a staff for years.

The teenager showed up in a panic on Thursday, cradling a wounded puppy in arms spattered with blood. A stray dog had attacked his 2-month-old pit bull on a walk near their South Los Angeles home. The city animal shelter nearby was the only place he knew to go. He ran over to Amanda Casarez, pleading for help. She took one look at the puppy's bloody gash and pulled out her cellphone. Within hours the pup was in surgery, the vet bill guaranteed by strangers from a pool of volunteers working with Downtown Dog Rescue, which sponsors an intervention program at the shelter.

To many team owners and sports executives outside of baseball, George Steinbrenner was more than the top man at the New York Yankees. He was the quintessential New York model. "He turned the Yankees into the New York Yankees Corporation," said Eddie DeBartolo, a close friend of Steinbrenner's and former owner of the San Francisco 49ers. "He put them in a place beyond anybody's reachability. It transcended baseball." Steinbrenner, who died Tuesday of a heart attack, headed a small group of investors who bought the struggling Yankees from CBS in 1973 for roughly $10 million.

Unfortunately, many second-home buyers find that out the hard way. According to a survey by HomeAway, an online marketplace for vacation rentals, owners spend an average of 8.6 hours a week managing their properties. That's one full workday a week. And even then, it's doubtful that the typical owner can market his vacation pad, maintain it and do all the other things necessary to have a successful rental regime.
