While Chris Bosh’s recent “Hangover” style bachelor party has been well chronicled across the web, his South Florida wedding later this month became a bit more complicated by the lockout.

Under lockout rules, the NBA has banned contact between players and team officials or coaches. Bosh, however, already has several such Miami Heat members on his invitation list.

While the Heat declined comment Friday, citing league guidelines, the team apparently has already cleared the appearances of management and the coaching staff at the power forward’s nuptials through the NBA.

InsideHoops.com editor says: I never understood why players who are signed to contracts can’t talk to team officials during a lockout. They are already signed. They can’t do anything. Free agents are another story.
