More likely the NBA will start a bit later which is a good thing for the owners. The NBA players will start missing paychecks and the owners will get what they want. On the other hand, players get a taste of what it would be like playing for Robert Sarver. Who else would ask his front office to take a pay cut after making it to the 2010 WCF. I guess there's no big free agent who is willing to play for the Suns at this rate. I have a feeling that it will be like the 99 season where we missed a couple of months and the owners got what they wanted. I'm just hoping for a hard cap where ALL the teams can compete for an NBA title.
