Cool story. You seem a bit dense?

The FACT is the contracts are valid until the players go to court and make a case to have the current contracts invalidated during the lockout. Only free agents will be able to make the move to Europe easily.

FIBA will not allow any NBA contracted players to sign with a European team until the US courts make a ruling on the validity of their contracts.

Not even sure why an NBA player would go to Europe, the economy sucks and more than half the teams are broke and the U.S. players there now don't get paid on time even when they have the F.A.T. stipulation written into their contracts

You guys can keep having pipe dreams about NBA players playing in Europe during a lockout, but it isn't going to happen.

After the first NBA player signs in Europe during the lockout I want this guy banned.

This is a pure lie. There is no such FIBA rule as this. You just keep making up a lie that is not true. There is not any FIBA rule and NEVER has been that prevents players under contract in the NBA from signing in Europe during an NBA lockout.

You live in fantasy land.

And for the 10th time, FIBA has NO jurisdiction over European club teams. ZERO. NONE.

There is no agreement if the contract is not paid.

In fact, the rule is that a contract in breach is not recognized by FIBA. If NBA goes into lock out the FIBA rule is they do not recognize any NBA contract.

And again, no European basketball club is bound by FIBA rules.

FIBA has not had any jurisdiction over those leagues for years. You are living 11 years in the past. In the present time FIBA has no jurisdiction over European clubs and leagues.

FIBA is no longer in control of European clubs. It hasn't been for years. It's amazing that supposed basketball fans don't even know that European club basketball has nothing at all to do with FIBA and has not for over a decade.

Are you retarded? Why can't you get it through your head that it really doesn't matter what the FIBA rules say, when the reason why the players aren't going over there is because they don't want to risk getting injured and subsequently giving up guaranteed millions for a short-term payday.

I can see a few guys whose deal expire at the end of the season going, but guys still under contract? Its too big of a risk.

I can only imagine, Kobe averaging 50 ppg, Lebron with a 40 point triple double?

Actually during the 1998 lockout the court did find that the owners are not in breach of contracts and the contracts were still valid, that under US labor laws the owners have a right to lockout players and not pay them without violating the contract... that's why when the lockout is over the players and owners don't have to go back and redo the contracts all anew

So the rest of your post is void... the fact is FIBA will not sign NBA players under contract until a U.S. court says the contracts are void. FIBA has no control over this, they are on the sidelines and unable to do anything until it plays out in the USA
