    unless Billy Hunter tries to make this process personal
    my biggest fear is that hunter takes a stance like demaurice smith is taking with the nfl owners. hopefully the players kibosh any idea of decertification and focus on getting a new deal instead of killing their fanbase.

    the lockout is pure speculation at this point. Time will tell if we have a lockout or not. Personally i think stern won't let it happen.
    That is what the players said in 1998.

    Yes. The lockout was from July 1st until January 20th and caused the season to be shorted to 50 games.

    Come on now, Raptors_, I know you can do a quick google search - lol.

    I can live with the season being shortened if it brings about a new CBA which promotes equality among the league (i.e. hard cap) and no exemptions - maybe a franchise tag but that is not something that concerns me. I think players should have the right to go where they want after they met their obligations. If a team has good management then money and winning is what free agents will look for and be attracted to. As Dwight said over the weekend, it doesn't matter about being a small market when it comes to endorsements - they'll still be there.
