Some believe the NBA's current system of sharing the multi-billion dollar pie is broken and they are predicting a lockout come 2011 -- just as when owners wanted to make significant changes to the system in 1997. Some, like the person writing this column, don't believe it is broken and only needs some tweaks.

All I am going to say is if I don't get to watch basketball for one whole year, I could possibly go through severe depression.

Some = Many?

2011 is still a long way away, but it doesn't look as bad as 98.

Obama is a basketball fan, he will just give the NBA a stimulus package.

So I should skip 2011-2012 and go from Raps10-11 Champ to Raps12-13 Champ.

And that ruins the chance of Lebron getting a title.

greed makes the world go round.

i wouldnt be surprised with a lockout, but i may consider putting myself into a coma for a year.

So lets see they are predicting a lockdown in the NBA in 2011 and there predicting the end of the world in 2012.

I can't wait for the new decade!:D

It will not happen, the NBA is too afraid of loosing talent to Europe and viewersip to the other sports. Some money is better than no money and if Europe and Asia take the top players and get American TV deals NBA would be finished. :smoking:

My advice....
Stay away from sports based cities(Boston,L.A,Knew York)
All the depression would drive fans insane, If your a girl your gonna get raped, if your a boy your gonna get murdered.
Lock yourself in a bomb shelter till 2012(that way when you get out of the bomb shelter the world will end)

Wow that would be horrible.

I'd have to go the park and watch people play.

And then record their stats and come here and tell you people about it.

How sad would that be? :(

What if the NBA turns into the NHL. That NHL lockout years back absolutely destroyed the game, i know i never watched it again.

We all know the worlds not going to end in 2012 we just like to have fun with it. The world will end when the sun turns into a red star which will be wayyyy past our lifetime. Like you said only God knows the when the worlds going to end (please no religious debate).

Pssh your crazy we all know God is a BOS fan which is why they have 17 championship titles. If only he was a Knicks fan

That'll never happen.
Instead of facing a depression, they should stop the WNBA and put all the money towards NBA
