The NBPA Has Disbanded

Following weeks of negotiations between players and owners, things look bleaker than ever for the 2011-2012 NBA season. In fact, the players have now walked away from the negotiations and decided to take the owners to court. As part of that action, they’ve disbanded their union, the National Basketball Players Association. Their website has been updated to reflect this:

Ultimately, the fans are getting screwed no matter who wins. If nothing else though, you’ve got to give the webmaster for the NBPA credit for adding a bit of levity to the whole situation.
