Thread: THE END for NBA Lockout?

    THE END for NBA Lockout?

    No matter how you received or read this headline,
    the one thing that is for sure is, that no matter
    what, it's true. The lockout is near the end,
    because they have reached an agreement, or it's
    near the end because they are about to piss away
    huge portion of the season as we know it.

    Last week was supposed to be the NBA season opener,
    and last night we should have had the "Dream Team"
    Miami Heat against the new look, championship
    aspiring, defense playing, New York Knicks in a
    newly remodeled Madison Square Garden, but that
    wasn't to be. I am by no means an NBA expert, or
    aficionado, but I am however a fan, and must admit
    that I probably would have lost much more sleep
    had the NFL dispute gone this far than I am with
    this. I think that the owners, and players both
    need to realize that this is much more the norm
    than the exception in this country, and it is
    probably in the best interest of both parties to
    get this resolved. I understand that most owners
    have lost money, but the players have already given
    back quite a bit. I realize that the players
    didn't start this, but there must be some other
    angle they can take to help the owners feel like
    they may have won here. GET IT DONE, this is
    ridiculous. It's becoming less and less sports
    relevant everyday, do you really want to become
    that obscure in the American sports scene?
    The latest news has them bickering over as little
    from 1/2 to 1%, and maybe that's a big number in
    dollars, but keep this up and you won't ever make
    it at the box office, not from me, and not from
    quite a few ticked off individuals.

    Michael Jordan is/was coaching the the American
    golf team, you have players playing in China,
    Turkey, Israel, and who knows where else, and
    owners getting fined 500,000 for disagreeing
    with how this is playing out. Talk about doing
    a great job of tarnishing your image. Sheesh

    I think I can speak for many of you when I say
    that we are all getting to the point where we are
    getting tired of hearing "it's just business"

    Ego's at work many times stop progress. Look at modern politics
