Most of you are aware of this impending lockout (not this year, but next year after the CBA expires). But when I saw that Larry Coon had an article on the subject, I figured I'd better link to it.
Larry Coon: Potential lockout hangs over highly anticipated 2010-11 NBA season - ESPN
Yet amidst the optimism, a dark cloud hangs over what otherwise promises to be an epic 2010-11 campaign. The NBA's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) will expire on June 30, 2011. If the league and players' union don't come to terms on a new agreement by then, the league will impose a lockout, a work stoppage that will disrupt business and could possibly lead to the cancellation of the entire 2011-12 season.
If you thought this offseason was hard to get through, imagine 12 additional months of it.
