Let me toss my two cents in here - I hope both the owners and the players continue to show the abject stupidity that embodies the NBA, and the lockout continues, and ends the season.
Yep. Screw the NBA. They're the HIGHEST PAID PRO ATHLETES as far as I can tell. There are NFL Linemen who look at the money that a pine-riding NBA scrub is making and that poor lineman, with broken bones, aching joints, a bad back, is thinking "All I need is a jumpshot and an attitude and I'd be rich!"
Fuck the NBA. They're a bunch of whiny bitches. A bunch of overpaid, over-attitudinal half-men with chips on their shoulder and a sneer on their faces, complaining because they get paid millions to play a game. Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em all. There are retired NFL players out there who can't walk anymore, and they made less in their entire career than some pine-riding flunkey makes in one NBA season.
Let the NBA fold for all I care. Maybe then I wouldn't have to flip through entire channels of snot-nosed prima donnas to get to the REAL winter sport - Hockey.
