    Default 2010/2011 Season May Be a Lockout (Ohh Crap!)

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Found this article from this week today.

    Just when we're about to land a caliber player...

    This is what Knicks DON'T need.

    We all remember 1998/1999, we're lucky we even got an NBA season in the first place.

    Spree wasn't a big name player then.

    He's exactly what Marbury is right now. A Controversy wrapped ball player who happens to play ball pretty well. Not exceptionally well.

    But analysts are saying this could drag into a lockout for more than 2 seasons if it does happen by then!!!! ESPN.


    Damn...

    Hopefully that Obama stimulus package can get this economy going...

    If it becomes a lockout, expect to see players jumping to Europe for money. And when the league gets back in business, expect some of them to stay.

    Spree was a 2x All Star before joining the Knicks. He was one of the league leaders in scoring before he got suspended.

    He wasnt Steph, he was Joe Johnson!

    Damn that would be some bull****. It would stunt the Knicks growth. One less year (or half a year) of no progression that we would need for our free agents and players to develop chemistry.

    This economic collapse isn't isolated to just the United States, their is a GLOBAL economic tear down going on, are you living under a rock? Europe is not doing any better.

    Just shows how much of a clue you have-

    I didn't realize that this global economic impact is causing billionaire sports owners in Greece, Italy, and Spain to not pay ppl. Chelsea in the EPL is still throwing money around like crazy, and so are a lot of teams in Europe in diff sports. The setup of these organizations is very different from American leagues. A lot of these clubs are the children of their investors who do it for love of the game and not for profit as american sports clubs are centered around. These guys in Europe don't care about losing money, they are planing on it. They are losing it before the economic crisis, so losing a little more after isn't going to change ****.

    You're a tool. Attack me all you want, you just show what a **** you are with all your constant bull****.

    EDIT:

    It's not, it's doing the complete opposite, you don't spend money to lessen a money problem, at the tax payers expense.

    Your criticism was never constructive on this forum anyhow, you always represent yourself as a smart ass. You have the designated bench rider Anthony Roberson in your sig, what do you know? Why not add in Jerome James too, they both have something in common, they ride the bench and are on the bulls.

    According to turner adick, one of the worst finical collapses taking place Globally does not effect European sports, only in the United States is sports effected by a economic disaster. Your more ignorant then I could possibly imagine. European countries have their own bailout bills, stimulus packages, and job losses to worry about. European stock market is suffering it's worst hit ever.

    You act as if I pick on you all the time, I forgot you even existed, go cry to your husbands Anthony Roberson and Mardy Collins you arrogant bytch-
