NBA lockout 2011: How will owners spend their free time?
The NBA has decided to lock their players out. No, we didn't misspell N-F-L. There's actually a second major sport in the United States whose owners decided it was a good idea not to allow their players to go to work. And so, the players will have ample time to practice their planking skills.
But how might their bosses, the NBA owners, spend their time during the lockout? We considered a few scenarios, then rated the likelihood of each.
Unlikely: Negotiate in good faith.
Somewhat unlikely: Start watching hockey, the sport you're going to get used to this winter.
Somewhat likely: The New Jersey Nets' new owner might have some friends that are very good negotiators, if you know what I mean.
Likely: Take basketballs from kids at inner-city playgrounds, then blame the players' union for not doing more for basketball-loving youths.
Probable: Create a Mark Cuban voodoo doll.
Very likely: Continue to casually brush off the NBA Player's Association's offers to give away their money.
Almost certainly: Ted Leonsis will pour all of his time and energy into the Washington Mystics.
Definitely: Weep softly while the new Wizards jerseys sit in the closet, untouched for now.
