Sure, the fact that the season may be all but cancelled sucks. No argument here. Not only does this mess threaten to wipe out all the goodwill produced by last season, it’s the mightiest public relations disaster imaginable, the dirt worst example of millionaires and billionaires bickering over the money pile while the basketball fans turn away en masse, disgusted by the whole sordid affair. Unless something dramatic happens, and soon, both sides will be content to stomp their feet for a few more dollars while Rome burns the fuck down.

But hey, didn’t you know there was a bright side to this? Turns out the (soon to be decertified) Players union has a wicked sense of humor. Take a trip to the NBA players associations’ home page and this is what you’ll find.

Error 404:  Basketball Not Found

Please be patient as we work on resolving this. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

What a bunch of cut-ups.

Yeah, I laughed. I’m sure you did, too. We’ll just have to wait and see how long it takes before this joke ceases being funny.
