The scenario is becoming all too familiar. The league and the players unable to agree, resulting in a players lockout. The NFL did it earlier this year, and now the NBA is following suit.

The League does have a legitimate concern, though, as revenues are on the decline at the same time ratings, interest and fan momentum are going up–can the NBA bean-counters say “recession?”
