Players have discussed starting an alternate league, if the current NBA lockout forces a cancellation of the season, according to New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire.
“Obviously we’re trying to … get this lockout resolved. We want to play NBA basketball,” Stoudemire said Tuesday night. “But if it doesn’t happen, what are we gonna do? We can’t just sit around and not do anything. So we have to figure out ways to now continue to play basketball at a high level against top competition and have fun doing it. So, that’s the next step.”
It looks like the players in the NBA aren’t going for the okey-doke on the recent lockout by team owner. While there are some who have gone to play overseas, some players are wondering why they can’t be owners themselves. This would be a major move in the land of the NBA athlete.
