HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: What was the lockout for?

After all, the owners supposedly locked out the players for five months, in part, to stop marginal journeymen from receiving ridiculous contracts.

No more overpaying suspect talent like Gilbert Arenas, Eddy Curry, Jerome James, Rashard Lewis, and others.

Or, so we thought …

Today the Golden State Warriors signed marginal post Kwame Brown to a one-year contract for $7 million.

Sure, the term is short. Sure, seven footers regularly received $10 million per annum before the lockout. And sure, rookie coach Mark Jackson coveted Brown as a defensive anchor.

But the work stoppage was about ending the insanity. What was all this labour strife was really about?
