We've seen a lot of players go down in production and most young teams have stayed pretty much at the same spot. Is it the lockout affecting the players and young teams?

Yup. For the younger teams like Sacremento, Toronto, Washington, Cleveland and others, they missed out on the summer league and a proper training camp.

For the teams that made a bigger splash. The quick ending blocked the free agents from developing along with the team chemistry (E.g. New York, Indiana (West hasn't really scared anybody as of yet)).

And of course for the older teams, they are getting killed by the hectic schedule like Boston.

Also, the Injuries are mounting up for the 7 games in 10 nights, and 9 in 12 and whatnot.

Next year will be much better... I hope.

Next year will be much better... I hope. Yeah most Irving, Thompson, Wall, Vesley, Cousins, Thornton, Derozen, And many more players have been affected.

Wouldn't say Pacers made a huge splash, but I agree on the chemistry issue..

Injuries have been horrible so far.

I don't think we'll face a similar problem next season

It's affected the rookies the most. It won't start affecting older teams until next month.

It has affected chemistry between players who are trying to get accustomed to a new team (DaveWest, Baby, CapnJax, Speights, etc...); rhythem for guys who didn't get much play in during the lockout; and injuries/health of all players to a certain extent... So yes, the product has been affected.

From the Nets standpoint the only thing lacking is chemistry, and I guess we could blame the lockout for that. This team really lacks chemistry.

I also think these "super teams" being built are responsible too. People just lose interest when they know their team has no shot at all. Which of course the product will suffer.
