NBA lockout continues - Rather watch epic basketball videos of the past

Definitely no good news regarding the annoying NBA lockout (have a look at NBA Commissioner David Stern's statement below).

I recommend to watch some epic basketball videos of the past in the meantime:


Stern: NBA has negotiated in good faith; season in jeopardy

By Official release
Posted Nov 14 2011 3:29PM

NEW YORK -- NBA Commissioner David Stern has issued the following statement:

"At a bargaining session in February 2010, Jeffrey Kessler, counsel for the union, threatened that the players would abandon the collective bargaining process and start an antitrust lawsuit against our teams if they did not get a bargaining resolution that was acceptable to them.

"In anticipation of this day, the NBA filed an unfair labor practice charge before the National Labor Relations Board asserting that, by virtue of its continued threats, the union was not bargaining in good faith. We also began a litigation in federal court in anticipation of this same bargaining tactic.

"The NBA has negotiated in good faith throughout the collective bargaining process, but -- because our revised bargaining proposal was not to its liking -- the union has decided to make good on Mr. Kessler's threat.

"There will ultimately be a new collective bargaining agreement, but the 2011-12 season is now in jeopardy."
