08:09 AM ET 08.09 | Andre Iguodala isn't much for keeping his opinions to himself. Sometimes that gets him into hot water because his words aren't always what people want to hear. So Monday morning, when on the 13th fairway at Trump National Golf Club, Philadelphia, the seven-year NBA veteran said "You know there's not going to be a season" one wanted to respond "Say it's not so." Instead, there was a thought that Iguodala is just speaking the truth. "I didn't think it would be this bad," Iguodala said, playing in an outing for Stars Within Reach, a foundation that encourages and helps children pursue their dreams. ... "You would think that we would be able to reach an agreement. But we are so far apart."

I can't wait to see how many NBA players get in trouble during the lock-out with the ol' "idle hands are the Devil's workshop" in play.

David Stern has not handled this situation well at all. The NBA cannot reach an agreement and good luck to Stern hearing the boos next year at the draft. Derek Fischer and that players committee is doing everything it can to stop this from happening and Divid Stern is not letting basketball happen. I mean, how is the NBA honestly losing money every year. Tickets cost 200 dollars for the worst seat in the house and most games all seats are taken up with the exception of the Cavaliers after the loss of LeBron James. It seems very unlikely there will be an NBA season and I think part of it is the contracts some of these players are getting paid. Kobe Bryant has a huge contract and he should be willing to take a pay cut along with the rest of the selfish players in NBA to lower the spending on them and increase the spending on other costs the NBA needs to make to get a season to happen because everyone wants one and the players association and owners and commissioner David Stern need to do their job to make that happen.

Whatever keeps Lebron off my airwaves is good for me. Let the lock out last till he dyes his momma's hair so no one can recognize her on land and at sea.

Wish you were right, Will. But now we get the "Lebron optimistic season will be played" threads.

He's really going out on a limb with that bit of information.
