Reports are starting to coming out now that confirm what we have all expected over these past 12 months - the NBA owners are locking out the players.
NBA Union Head: NBA to Lock Out Players | ESPN
The two sides remain far apart on virtually every point of contention, so it looks like we are in for a long waiting game. The NFL continues to engage in its own lockout, and while they have so far fought a fight through the courts and a union desertification, it is not yet clear how the NBAPA and the team owners will proceed.
We will do our best to keep you up to date on the situation as it unfolds.

Don't lose hope; I do believe that level heads will eventually realize that in a protracted lockout, everybody loses. There is too much at stake for this to last forever, so hopefully we'll be bringing you good news soon.
And for something completely adorable, here is a kitten fighting with a pit-bull to the sounds of Guns 'n' Roses.
