NBA Lockout: You Get Nothing

On Monday, the NBPA met to discuss the latest offer from the NBA owners. Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter announced that the NBPA has decided to file an anti-trust lawsuit against the NBA. YahooSports' Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the following. Prepare for sadness:

The lawyers will file suit within next two days. No need to wait on decertification. Union is disbanded immediately.

David Stern said on SportsCenter: "We are about to go to the nuclear winter of the NBA"

Fun stuff, right? Well now that the players have decided to take the "nuclear" option roughly 4 months too late, the 2011-12 NBA season seems HIGHLY unlikely. This means that we will probably lose the entire 82 game season while millionaires continue to fight with billionaires. I expect several Cavaliers players to try playing for teams overseas as Kyrie Irving tweeted earlier this week. Needless to say, this is incredibly frustrating. More updates when we get them.
