I can only blame myself for being upset today. This lockout’s been a rollercoaster ride from the beginning. I’ve had days when I doubted the potential season and days when I was so optimistic I thought it would be resolved on the spot. Finally, over the last few weeks I’ve resorted to mere hope, and for that I consider myself foolish. The whole situation is horrendous with millionaires fighting billionaires. Here’s a tip for both sides. Owners (who I put most of the blame on for this whole deal): You have already won the battle. Your employees have sacrificed millions of dollars to make you happy/make up for your OWN losses, and it still wasn’t enough. Players: You are getting paid to play a sport that you love and that others love watching you play. As whole, this league needed the lockout to result in a season more than ever. Both sides have let down a countless number of workers who rely on NBA games for their livelihood and millions of fans who have given countless amounts of money over the past century to see you guys play. Sad day in history for the NBA. Sad, sad day.
