Alright in case you didn't know there may or may not be a season
We might be stuck watching hockey, and here's the reason
There's a lockout in the NBA and that's bad
It puts a sour note on the memories we had
But like I was sayin', now there's a lockout in effect
And it comes down to money man, what else do you expect?
The players are upset because they want more millions
And the owners are too because they want more billions
They think there should be a limit, on how much a player can make
Therefore they won't be responsible, for their mistakes
Like an overpriced contract, Joe Johnson HUH
Or causing players to go, overseas NAH
I like the old rivalries like the Lakers and the Celtics
And watching 'Melo and Amare try to save, the Knicks
Wondering what's hidden in Kevin Durant's backpack
Maybe it's the Miami Heat's 4th quarter attack
Derrick Rose blooming into, a bonafide star
Getting drunk and watching Blake Griffin jump, over a car
Dwight's the new big man cuz Shaq, and Yao Ming are gone
Skip Bayless knows as much as the guy who seent the Leprechaun
Kobe's about to experience life without Phil Jackson
David Stern's about to experience life without black men
Congrats to Dirk and the Mavs, for getting their first ring
It must be hard when the whole world, wants you to win
Chris Bosh, looks like a dinosaur - DINOSAUR
Like the raptor from Jurassic Park - JURASSIC PARK
Mettaworldpeace - Yup
Jordan's Hitler stache - Yup
Birdman - Yup
Chris Broussard - AH-HA
Samaki Walker ate a whole bag of weed
F-ck you Lebron

You're watching multisource sports video news analysis from Newsy.
A Twitter account is free-- but the tweets just got really expensive for one NBA owner. Here’s HLN.
“The NBA just hammered Miami Heat owner Micky Arison for a tweet that he just sent out. They hammered him with a $500,000 fine. He recently engaged in a back-and-forth with some of his Twitter followers about the NBA lockout, and the problem is the NBA has a zero tolerance policy. Owners are not allowed to discuss anything related with the current labor dispute.”
So just what was the offending tweet, and how much will the fine really hurt Arison? WFOR breaks it down.
“A fan took him and other owners to task, saying on Twitter that they were being ‘greedy pigs.’ Arison’s response was ‘You are barking at the wrong owner.’... In case you’re wondering and counting, his brief tweet is costing him more than $15,000 per character. But he’s worth $4 billion so it won’t sting too much.”
Arison only had 140 characters to work with-- but a writer for CNET says there was a lot of meaning in that short message.
“With these few words, he pointed his tweeting fingers at small-market and, some might say, small-minded owners, such as Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen, who are gritting their teeth for an extra few pounds of freshly bitten flesh.”
But NBA commissioner David Stern tells The New York Times-- the fine was more about when the tweet was sent than what it said.
“‘Stern [noted] that the message appeared on the very night that negotiations collapsed. ‘We’re trying very hard to get a deal done with the players, or we were, and we don’t need any external distractions to that focus.’”
So is Arison’s tweet a sign of a growing rift between the owners? ESPN’s Marc Stein doesn’t think so.
“He’s not as desperate as an owner in Indiana or Memphis or Atlanta who’s looking at a half-empty building all the time. We’ve known all along that there’s no way all 30 owners are going to be on the same page, but I don’t see this having a dramatic impact on the talks from here.”
NBA games are now canceled through November 30th, and no new talks between owners and the Players’ Association have been scheduled.

ANCHOR CHRISTY LEWIS
Ever had the desire to spend an afternoon running for your life while being pursued by 1000-pound bulls? Well you may be in luck, the Spanish tradition of running with the bulls has made it stateside.
The small town of Cave Creek, Arizona held the fourth-ever running of the bulls in the United States, the first in almost a decade. But unlike the original in Spain where gorings and tramplings are common -- organizers of the Arizona counterpart say their version is safer because the track is much shorter . And, as one Pamplona veteran tells ABC, the bulls are much tamer as well.
“They’re different animals too. So in Spain you have El Toro Bravo. The bull that’s been bread for hundreds of years for the bull fight. These rodeo bulls don’t want anything to do with you unless you’re in their way. But that’s the whole idea of this thing isn’t it?”
No one was injured during the run and The New York Times went as far as calling the event quote, “The Stroll of the Bulls.” A professional bull rider and participant told The Arizona Republic the runs just aren’t as dangerous as some people think…
“The traditional theory of running with the bulls has to do with running with them and alongside them. It’s when you start tormenting them that they start to get aggressive. … This is a good thing. And it’s entertaining.”
Dangerous or not an SB Nation blogger says – the whole thing is a bit silly.
“This is an amazing example to pull out the next time you want to argue against the NBA lockout, or perhaps if you want to suggest that the baseball season is too short, or that NFL teams should play twice a week. Just look what people can get up to without sports to distract them.”
The event’s organizer already has plans to bring similar events to six major markets throughout the United States. (The Huffington Post)
“‘This is the beginning stages to the newest extreme sport in the United States,’ he said. He thinks the danger will attract runners and an audience. ‘Why is NASCAR so popular? … It's not because people want to see a car drive around in circles. It's because they're waiting for that accident.’"
