The game, scheduled for Satu r d a y at Providence, R, I,, was :anccltcd after the NBA owners von a binding arbitration pro- libiting their players from par- icipating. Flcisher said he believes the owners moved against the game because of television con: '-?rations. The charity game .... j to be televised by the American Broadcasting Com- jany. which had televised NBA Barnes from 1364 until t h i s season when the Columbia Broadcasting System got the con- Tact. "The rival television network paid a lot of money for the rights to the NBA Game of the Week and was very unhappy to see it (the All-Star Game) on another network," said Flci- 5 her. The NBA players' counsel said one of the league's major arguments in the battle over whether the game should be [jluyed was whether an All-Star Game could be telecast by a network which does not hold broadcast rights to the NBA Game of the Week, Kteishcr added that another consideration was the stand by the owners that "the players should not have the right to put on a game . . . that this is a providence the owners feel belongs to them."
