Default First 2 Weeks of the NBA Season Officially Cancelled

Fuck both sides. They clearly have no idea how bad this is going to be for their product. After such a great year just throwing it down the drain. This is why the NBA will never come close to the popularity of MLB and NFL even though the youth in North America probably like and play basketball more than any other sport. Pathetic.

The players are greedy idiots who dont seem to realize the offer is going to get worse not better from here on out. Its going to be hard for the NBA to recover from this. No other league has had 2 lockouts in the span of 12 years have they? Just when they were getting back fans and respectability they throw it all down the drain and people will now go back to trashing the league. On the flip side with the loss of fans the owners are going to hurt as well. Both sides are insane.

lol... the players always budge..... once the majority of players that aren't on max deals start to feel the pinch..... look out. The owners are being led efficiently..... It's easier to get 30 to agree.....

I'd love to be a fly on the wall for one of these meetings to see what kind of things they are actually negotiating, or lack of negotiating.

Well, this isn't the least bit surprising. I'm just hoping we get a half season. If that happens i'll be happy enough.

Well said Thriller. It was all too predictable. And now we get to hear both sides sell more BS. The NFL was on the same course, but they were able to see the insanity of going through with it. I won't be handing over any of my money for ome time, and I regret the money I did offer in the past to a certain degree. The fans get played as suckers in this shit, and there is no way to make that right.
