Drown your sorrows here.


Well, it's the doldrums now. The league occasionally meets with the players, the players occasionally put on an exhibition, the fans try to watch FIBA or get really into college football season.

Yep, this is a lockout.

So, why fight it? Let's embrace the pain, shall we? In the comments, you can talk about what you miss/will miss the most because of this lockout. What are we, the fans, losing? What is it that this lockout really takes away from us? In the words of the bard:

"Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break."

Is this premature? I don't care.

For my part, there are four things that I think I shall miss by not having a season. 1. Dwight Howard playing for the Magic one more time. Yep, I think he's probably leaving. 2. Jason Kidd not getting one more season. He said he's retiring if the whole season is locked out, and he's always been one of my favorite players to watch. 3. The Mavericks not getting to really defend their title. I think an extra year off really reshapes the NBA landscape. 4. One less year of watching Miami play. No, I do not like them. Yes, I do like to watch them play basketball. The two are not mutually exclusive.

That's all I've got off the top of my head: anyone else?
