In case you're not a sports a fan, or at least not a fan of the NBA, here's the prerequisite information you need before reading ahead. The NBA and the NBA Players Association failed to hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) last week to replace the one that expired, and the NBA decided to lock out its players, forcing a work stoppage. What's interesting about this, and relevant from a technology perspective, is that webmasters had to remove all images and videos of NBA players from team websites, almost as if the players no longer exist.
Fans of the National Basketball Association (NBA) may be able to tune in and watch live streaming games of their favorite teams on YouTube next year (assuming owners and players can hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement in time to avoid a lockout). According to a report in Bloomberg, the Google-owned video site is in negotiations with the NBA and "most pro sports leagues" to show more live sports.
