    I doubt it. They will all get it settled right before the season starts

    Unfortunately we are already past the season's start.

    I have no hope for the owners and players working this out anytime soon. I think we will definitely lose the entire season. With the NFL I felt like the players and owners wanted to work out a deal but just took them a long time to find common ground but with the NBA players and owners the level of selfishness is at an all time high.

    I knew there would be no full season, but now I think there won't be a season at all. This is a serious lockout issue, what the NFL went through is a complete joke as to what the NBA is going through right now. Both parties are worlds apart on a deal and there's even some word of bickering within the NBPA. We have alot of stars that are past their prime and nearing the end of their storied careers (Duncan, Kidd, Kobe, Dirk, Nash, etc.) and it's sad to see these players having their limited time left in the league wasted.

    I personally blame the players, but greed is the main evil here. Owners have always spoiled their team and now they want some of that money back.

    That being said....looks like my Mavs are champs by default:p

    Your asking the wrong questions...


    It would be more complete for the conversation to ask: "Who HOPE's the NBA Season is Cancelled "?

    And you could take the conversation even further to ask "Who CARE's if the NBA Season is Cancelled"?

    Now you have a REAL THREAD!

    This, I believe, should have been the title of this thread. JMO, but I'm allowed to have one!

    Realistically, Life will be like licking the bottom of the ash tray, until the first pitch of Spring Training. Only then will all, be renewed!

    I think it will be canceled... over greed.... they now proposed a 72 game season starting mid december a month and a half late... most likely getting rejected by the players

    study showed 76% of Americans don't miss the nba.... im one of them.... footballs on lol.... now that's a sport I'd miss

    Yeah the NBA has fallen greatly in the last couple of years.

    Still love the sport and I play regularly, so I miss it. I thought there would be some hope, but as long as football is still on, I'm good. Except my Eagles are really underperforming this year...very frustrating...

    Got into hockey 2 seasons ago so that's going on too.

    Wow 76% don't care? I wonder how that percentage will change after the superbowl. Thing is, you can sit back and enjoy a good basketball game almost any night, while on football you have to wait for Sunday and Monday

    I haven't cared about the NBA since the 90's, possibly early 2000's. Its gone downhill...

    Football all the way

    you got that right.... I remember defense ... the jordan era... I liked the hate vs your opponent... now all the stars are bffs ... what a joke

    Ben Wallace was one of my fave players through the '00s.... his defense highlight reel is fantastic.... unfortunately he couldn't score for the life of him

    maybe ill miss basketball come playoff time but definitely not while the nfl is on.... I even prefer baseball over the nba

    I liked the dream team, Bulls and the Rockets back then. Now its pretty boring. There is no excitement at all.

    I just wish we had this season, some of my favorite players (Dirk, Nash, Duncan, etc.) are all past their primes and their careers are nearing their end. No NBA season is a wasted year for these guys and a year for me to not see them play. Especially after the career year Dirk has had, I really want to see him play next year.

    All these younger stars (Lebron, Wade, Melo) don't interest me, with the exceptions of Rose, Durant, and Paul. Sure the NBA has a lot of young stars for the future, but the stars nearing the end of their careers are one of a kind. :frown:

    I think it's safe to say there won't be an NBA season now. Players are exceptionally greedy along with their agents. I think Derek Fischer was the worst man who could have led them. I hope they never bounce back from this financially as a league. It should never come to this when this much money is on the table. You are screwing over the people who pretty much pay your salary, our hard earned money going to complete waste here.
