And so it begins. The NBA announced today it would lock out the players beginning at midnight tonight. That means no practices, no Summer League, no trades or free agent signings, and no team doctors helping Toney Douglas heal his broken shoulder.
We could be here a while. Luckily, KnickerBlogger has all sorts of swell stuff planned. Think of it as surviving a temporary power outage. Only instead of ghost stories and Dinty Moore beef stew, we’ll have Report Cards and… other stuff. In the mean time, use this thread to share your thoughts on the current labor strife, as we ponder these and many other questions:
How long will the lockout drag on? Will we see a shortened season a’la ’98-’99?
If players and owners come to an agreement, what will / should it look like?
Depending on what agreement is reached, what moves should the Bockers make heading into next season?
Will there be a return of the “lockout beard”?
Do Greek protesters yell “Opa!” every time they lob of a Molotov cocktail?
Enjoy! Or, in my case, weep. Either or.
