The NBA ushered in the sixth shutdown in history, only this time has nothing to do with money
For the NBA, season lockouts are not common, but more than once. The most fundamental reason is mainly the interests of both employers and employees.Before this season, the NBA had a total of five lockouts, all because the labor negotiations could not reach agreement, and because of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, it was the first time in NBA history.The NBA’s first lockout occurred in 1964. Because the interests of players were not protected, the position of the player union was not recognized. The chairman of the current player union called on players to pressure the league by means of strikes.An hour before the All-Star game, including Chamberlain and Russell, many players announced their withdrawal from the game and refused to participate in the subsequent game.Under pressure, the NBA league agreed to negotiate with the player union and officially approved another alternative.In 1976 and 1994, the NBA made its second and third lockouts.The lockout in 1976 originated from a league regulation. At that time, the NBA and ABA had just merged. According to the regulations that no ungraded players can enter the NBA, the ABA player Hayward is considered to be ineligible to play in the NBA.After that, the storm finally subsided.The NBA once announced a lockout in 1994. At first, the employer and the employer had a hard salary cap. The rookie contract had differences. Until the two sides reached agreement, the NBA announced the end of the lockout.As of now, the most serious lockout occurred in 1998, when the employers representing the NBA team owners wanted the league to limit the salary cap and player salaries, and the player union firmly opposed, the two sides broke through, and the league began to shut down.From July 1, 1998 to January 20, 1999, the NBA shut down for a total of 203 days, and each team played only 50 regular season games.The closest lockout occurred in 2011, and the cause was also a labor agreement.From July 1, 2011, until November 26, after 15 hours of negotiations, both parties finally reached a new agreement, ending the 149-day shutdown.Similar to the 1998-1999 season, the 2011-2012 season has shrunk significantly, with all teams playing only 66 regular season games.As of now, each NBA team has played 63 to 66 regular season games, there are not many games left in the regular season, but considering the temporary suspension due to the epidemic, when will the season resume?How to calculate if the regular season ranking cannot be restored?How will the playoffs be arranged?For these problems, the NBA league should come up with countermeasures as soon as possible.Sauna, Ye Wang Xu Bangyin editor Han Shuangming proofreads Wei Zhuo
