Found November 15, 2011 on The Sports Bank:
PLAYERS: David Stern
I’m not even going to acknowledge the headlines from the NBA labor situation yesterday. I’m so effing sick of it. Sick of hearing about it; basically the whole league sucks at life. That’s my take on the union de-certifying/David Stern’s proposal/players rejecting it. Basically, in a year after record television ratings, the league is going to lose every casual fan they made in 2011-12. I won’t even read or write anything more about the lockout. Instead here’s a Derrick Rose highlight compilation, watch it after the jump Paul M. Banks is CEO of The Sports Bank.net, a Google News site generating millions of unique visitors. He’s also a regular contributor to Chicago Now, Walter Football, Yardbarker, and Fox Sports. A Fulbright scholar and MBA, Banks has appeared on live radio all over the world; he’s also a member of the FWAA, USBWA and SPJ.

Industries in Trouble With the Continued NBA Lockout

The NBA’s terrible offer, and the NBA Players Association’s response
