Scott Howard-Cooper with NBA.com joins Grant Napear to share his thoughts on the NBA lockout saying, “There is a lot of frustration surrounding the lockout.” He went on to say, there is a lot of money on the line, as a player this is where a lot of money is lost.
When asked what kind of effect the lockout will have on the NBA fan base Howard-Cooper said we will not know the true effects of the lockout on fans until next season. As far as scheduling goes Cooper feels that the NBA could not just pick up and go if a solution is reached, the schedule will have to be totally redone.
Weighing in on where the Kings sit in the midst of the lockout, Howard-Cooper feels that the lockout will affect the kings; adding “emotions are a big part of it.” Sacramento needed a season to build on the momentum they had after the fight to keep the kings last season. He went on to say that to say that the NBA wants a team in Sacramento. The league sent people out to help the Kings and if the league did not want them where they are that would have never happened.
