The more star players who opt to play overseas next season the better. Only this will force the owners into protecting their investments and stop this wreckless lock-out.

China has enough money to pay every all-star in the league to play there. That would be the ultimate slap to David Stern's face! Right now, ever high-powered agent in the league is shopping their player's services elsewhere, with the full blessing of the NBAPA!

More power to them. The owners made this bed, let them suffer. I have no sympathy!

If Stern is so concerned about his "legacy," then he should be about reigning in the owners who have abused and continue to abuse the system THEY created.

Screw them! I can root for D.Howard via satelite TV!

The money's NOT there DUMMY ! If/when the player/owners learn to work together, things could be fine. It take both side to make it work and players MAKE TOO MUCH ! When Miami pays HUGE, to watch LeBron take the 4th quarter off the ENTIRE finals......Let's just say, Cuban was the ONLY happy owner that week !

He're the problem...

The money IS there, you are just the SUCKER that buys the propaganda the league is throwing out there. If the money was not there, the checks would not be written. It's a simple as that.

In the las CBA the NBA had the following in place:

The Mid-Level Exception
The Larry Bird Exception
The Bi-Annual Exception
The The Non-Bird Exception
The The Traded Player Exception
The Disabled Player Exception
The Minimum Player Exception

NBA Team also have a LUXURY TAX for those teams who wish to exceed their SOFT Salary Cap.

Any team in the NBA can use any of the above mentioined exception, AND pay the luxury tax. In other words Melvin, if you have a team that make more money in external revenue, you have more money to AFFORD the exceptions. The teams that can afford the best free-agents and remain competitve on a yearly basis.

We are not talking about Milwakee, or Minnesota here. We are talking about teams that consistanly contend for titles. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule like San Antonio, but they have one of the best front offices in the NBA. Small market teams that win championships seldom repeat and rarely get a chance to win another for quite some time (see Portland).

What the NBA wishes to do is simple: Dismantle the system THEY put in place. The arguement is not against the players really, the arguement is against big market teams vs. small market teams. The Players Association has reccomented REVENUE SHARING for years to the League. It works for the NFL! Why do you think a team like Green Bay just won a championship?

Problem is big market teams in the NBA would lose their competitive balance if they had to share their revenues with the little brothers. The MONEY IS THERE DUMMY, the NBA just does not wish to divy up the booty like the NFL does!

The next time to care to call somebody dummy, do your F'in homework first!

I still have a hard time believing that there will be a lockout. I think it will end in time for there to be basketball in America.
