Now for a question I ask to my readers: Why did they lockout and what do you think about this whole thing?

Answer: 2 words: Collective Bargaining. Its stupid though because they get paid millions of dollars just to play. If that was me I wouldnt care what We as players get in the deal as long as we get to do what we came into the league to do which is play basketball. If I signed a contract it would be maybe in the 1-3 million a year range not like some who sign and get 8 million a year. A man needs to live on what he makes and support their families not be greedy and spend it on a giant mansion. But I probably would do that as long as my entire family lived in it and not just one person. Share the wealth not hoard it. Back to the subject. NBA is back and we finally get 3 sports to watch in the winter!
