The NBA Too?

I consider myself an all around sports fan, but mainly basketball is my first love. I have played on almost every level except the NBA and even if I hadn't played I would have still loved the game. What's not to love, it's a game of both athleticism and intelligence, exciting enough to draw people to the watch games even though they have no idea what's going on, and most of all basketball is just plain fun.

Is all this really over money?

In past articles where I wrote about what was going on with the NFL lockout I can recall focusing in on the subject of greed, but now it confuses me on just how greedy the NBA owners are even though they are making millions of dollars already. Professional athletes have been getting exploited for a long time and only in recent years have they started receiving a fair portion of league wide revenue. I guess the owners have been getting so much for so long that it hurts knowing you are not getting most of the anything anymore. The interesting thing is, players have the option to play elsewhere, maybe not for the same kind of money, but they can still play. The owners can't be owners with a league wide work stoppage. Why can't both sides workout a deal while continuing on with business as usual? I'm confused!!!
