Just thought I would put in a plug for a great basketball related thing to do during the lockout.
This a FREE virtual worldwide basketball general manager. You get your own team of virtual players and you control their training, free agency and strategies for games. I have been addicted for almost 2 years now. It is a great time to start your new team because the next season is starting this week. (you can sign up anytime and take over a team mid season if you want) There are over 50,000+ teams worldwide including over 3500 in the US. I can send you a referral or just sign up (if you want a referral send me an email at my profile name @ymail.com). It is really fun, you get put in a league and play games and work to advance to higher levels. There is also a Country tournament every season where you can find out who the best team in the country is.
If you do sign up I can offer advice and help you get started. My team's name is Jr. Jazz All-Stars. If you have any questions you can email me or post in the comments below.
