    Would the NBA been better off locked out all season?

    All season long, the NBA has not provided a good brand of basketball. With a condensed schedule, no training camp, players have gotten injured left and right. The All-Star game was kind of pathetic with voting ending after 20 games and Iguodala, Hibbert and Deng making the squad. And injuries have been the story of the playoffs.

    It's basically become a story of Rose tore his ACL, Howard never played in the playoffs, Lin never played in the playoffs (and Shump tore his ACL), Bosh is now out, Paul & Griffin are playing seriously hurt and Wade is hurt.

    The healthy teams are the ones prevailing while the Bulls, Magic and Knicks are out. The Clippers are on their last legs and the Heat are down 2-1.

    It's really a shame Stern had to pack in 66 games and not just make it a 50 game season without having 5 games a week, it's not baseball.

    There truly should be an asterisk to the champion, because every team was not nearly healthy at all and I can't think of any other season in NBA history where this many stars were injured come playoff time.

    To answer this question, no. Let them rest during the offseason and then regain themselves with better conditioning and less compacted games

    No, I would rather have basketball than no basketball to put it simply. I do miss the regular season schedule and all the stuff they had to miss due to the lockout however...

    You're kind of a hypocrite. You're a Knick homer who is wishing this season had never happened because it led to the injuries of Jeremy Lin and Iman Shumpert, yet if this season never happened there would be no Jeremy Lin or Iman Shumpert.

    You are the man.

    /thread.
    This is a plea to all logical posters to please make all homers feel dumb on a daily basis until they return to their team forum where they bleong.
