The NBA would be nothing without our support.

Yeah I dont see this lasting anything short of six months unless somebody's willing to some major concessions.

good idea about the sticky.

dam, if I was a player right now, I would go to Europe and try to bring all of teammates/friends with me.

That could get them a season sooner and even if it doesn't, their still playing basketball in Europe.

I dont think most NBA players even want to go to Europe. And right now its not urgent, they're all use to having June, July, August and September off any how, once the season approaches we'll see some urgency.

If i was an NBA player, i wouldn't take this lockout as a extended holiday. I'd use to my advantage and try improve. Just like what Jared Dudley is doing, the way he tweets how he's hitting the weights, sounds like he'll be LeBron James soon.

Well at least soccer season start's next month. So i won't have sports withdrawal for too long.

Bruins just ended and Red Sox are ongoing. Right now, it is as it should be. I'm good. If the NBA decides to screw us, I'll be watching a lot of NHL, NFL, and college football/hoops.

I think it can get better, first thing to do is cut out the big 3 and somehow make it harder for Owners to offer up crappy deals. (Which probably means make a tighter salary cap)

Just pack your bags to Turkey/China. That's where the NBA is headed.
