The 2011-12 NBA season was planned to be kicked off tonight as the Chicago Bulls were set to visit the Dallas Mavericks.
It would have been a battle featuring a team that took the league by storm with an NBA-best record of 62-20 versus a team that slayed the Goliath, known as the Miami Heat, on the night which they would have received their championship rings.
Unfortunately, that turned out to just be a dream.
The players’ association and the owners are still battling over revenue shares. In most recent reports of collective bargaining negotiations, it seems as though the sides are 2.2% apart.
Both sides of the table are trying not to lose, what each consider to be, their rightful slice of the pie.
But the ones who are losing most of all are basketball fans around the city, nation and the world.
