The lockout was a complete waste of time, I swear the point of the lockout was to make it so guys can't just up and leave there teams to powerhouse teams, wtf all the rumours I hear involve Paul, Howard and Deron leaving to LA or New York. Anyone else pissed off that we missed a month of basketball for nothing.

Until the escalated tax system kicks in it'll be business as usual. They should have had it kick in July 2012. It gives every team the rest of the season plus next summer to get their house in order, amnesty a player and get this shit on track. This way here, nothing changes until the 2013-14 season if i'm not mistaken. Bullshit!

I'm happy it will be a shortened Raptor's season.

Just waiting for the D12 to LAL declaration at this point.

All that being said, it'll make for one HELL of a "Final 4" if LAL, DAL, NYK and MIA all make the conference finals.

That'd be some must-watch TV!

I wouldn't count Chicago out as well. Apparently Caron Butler is eyeing them as a possible destination.

all the major players will relocate to the big markets before the tax stuff kicks in, by then the rooks will be almost good and they will sign all of them too to fill in the blanks. Trust me, the NBA will suck for a decade.

I think it was a strategic attempt by the half gimped top level players, trying to take a year off.
