goes basic after the lockout

Just in case you've been under a rock or in a coma for the past few days, the NBA lockout began at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time on Friday morning. As such, league front office people aren't allowed to talk to anyone that isn't related to them for fear of catching a $1 million fine from David Stern. Apparently that also means that the league itself isn't allowed to acknowledge that NBA players even exist. As of midnight, the league's website erased nearly all mentions of any actual basketball playing male athletes and instead replaced it with "NBA Website 1.0".

Looking like something that was made after a quick read of "Websites for Dummies", this new features a few stories on the lockout and what it means for the league paired with stories of the WNBA. If you thought that the NFL cornered the market on pettiness during the initial stages of their lockout, get ready. This promises to take petty to a whole new level. At least still runs feature stories about what its athletes are up to. However, in Stern's world, if you're not with him, you're against him. And if you're against him, you may as well be dead to him.

The NBA...where cold blooded happens.
