So when is this ****ing lockout going to end?
Make your predictions!
I say October 18th.
October 22nd. Barely any preseason, but the season starts on time, and the Maloof family praises the heavens.
It's not only the Maloofs tho, they're just the last team that almost had to uproot the franchise and go elsewhere to get more tax payer and gov't money to make things happen. There are plenty of NBA franchises that don't want to see a year lost, despite what all the talking tv heads say. Those teams just want an NBA where they pay the players less, and the revenue from big market teams is shared better. They're not willing to miss a season tho.
