After being unable to reach a new collective bargaining agreement, the start of the 2011-12 NBA season will be in serious jeopardy when the owners lock out the players at midnight Thursday.

First the NFL, and now the NBA, money is the dividing issue and how to divvy up millions of dollars. Unlike thd NFL, NBA owners and players are far apart on reaching any sort of deal and this could be a long standoff.

NBA owners want a hard salary cap and more revenue which the players are balking at.

The Wizards just introduced their top draft pick in Jan Vesely on Monday, and now it’s anyone’s guess as to when fans will be able to see him and his new teammates play. All business for the players will cease. They will not be able to use team facilities or interact with Wizards management.

It is going to be a long offseason.
