Billionaires vs. millionaires--all ends up screwing the people who really depend on the NBA for jobs--arena workers, ticket sales, etc.

Yes. With the economy the way it is in the US, I agree that the fans will walk away, repulsed by all the avarice.

And of course the biggest losers in this drawn-out dispute is the fans and little people who work 9-5 making ends meet. I for one used to be an avid fan back in the days of Jordan, Magic, Bird, Malone, Stockton and Ewing. Those were the days when it was really fun and guys had a bit more respect for the game. There's just no fun anymore. It's like these owners and players only care about the money. Whatever happened with loyalty and wanting to stay with one team and try to win a championship with your group of guys?
