YES, people care, and I am certainly one of them.

The NBA had it's most exciting season since the Jordan era last season, and this is terrible timing for both the owners and the players. The news about the union breaking apart and filing a lawsuit adds an extra sense of gloom and doom, but Im still holding out some hope that they find a way to get a deal done before the end of the year.

I don't think it's fair to say or assume guys don't wanna win or just wanna cash a paycheck at the highest levels. Sure, I don't doubt that it happens, or that a guy gets too comfortable once they start making a lot of money, but I think that we see that to a certain degree in all sports.
LOL, well I knew that fight wasn't going to be close at all, but guess maybe I was the only one on the planet who knew it

Lockouts and those ridiculous millionaires vs. billionaire battles just irk me. I understand some of it with the NFL considering the dangers involved, and honestly can't say I know the details with the NBA since I don't really watch it nor keep up with the news on it.

Just saw that it was an untouched subject on the forum so I brought it up. So far, you're the only one who cares (on this forum)
