The 'lockout' is basically a matter of money. Given the crisis hitting the global economy, or players nor owners want to give your piece of the pie and are not willing to lose money.

Lakers teammate Pau Gasol, to give another example, entering leave $ 2.3 million of the 18.7 that would have to charge this season.
