NBA owners and the Players Union are still stalled in their talks ...the season has been shortened already...No games through the end of November at least, if not, maybe longer.

Does anyone really care about the NBA....and will this be the year for NHL to become the true best winter sport alternative to football?


Anybody have thoughts on the over-paid owners, players, and machine of Professional sports teams?

Players say no to owners Last, best offer and now will decertify the union like the NFL did and take them to court. Do they not understand that nobody cares or is even missing the league right now.

NCAA BB has started.....NBA is toast, but i never watched it anyway.

On a happier side note, its GREAT to flip through channels and have choices of NHL games right now! wink.gif

I fully expect there will not be a 2011-2012 NBA Season.

huh.gif What's the NBA?....... tongue.gif

Instead of shortening the Season....Why not just shorten the games to the last five minutes?

With all of the commercials, fouls, time-outs, and various time-wasters...I think they can get an hours TV out of it....

Frankly the rest of the time the NBA is pretty boring......

I come from where BB originated (professionally), and from a 'legendary' B'Ball city outer suburb (okay, rural); anyway, I never got any thrill for the game-watching or playing, I would not know if it was gone. (oh, it IS gone, Huh.)
