This is getting ridiculous, they cancelled the preseason and possibly the first half of the season. We need to have a NBA season, so the players and the owners need to be on the same page and get this deal done. The 1998-99 season was bad enough, when the season was cut to 50 games, and plus the all-star game was cancelled, that season. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was a junior in high school when all of this was going down. Without the NBA season going on, what other sport will fill the void when football's over with? It'll be really boring trying to find something on T.V. without basketball being on. Something's gotta give. The NBA better get something done and start thinking about the fans instead of the money. Money's not everything.
