If you've been paying attention to the NBA's labor woes, this statement should sound familiar:
"Unfortunately, we lose less money by not playing, and we know if we were to try to continue to play we would lose franchises and be in terrible, terrible shape. We are out of gas."
And you'll probably think you've heard this before, from a player involved in the collective bargaining process:
"It's interesting that we're supposed to enter into a partnership that starts with a lockout."
Sounds like any of a dozen comments made by NBA Commissioner David Stern and National Basketball Players Association President Derek Fisher since the NBA locked players...
