NBA lockout: Players' union's anger may be justified

The lockout has been frustrating for NBA fans of all the teams. It seems like when there is news of progress, there is news of things falling apart. The owners and players are standing firm on what they want.

Mark Medina of the LA Times takes a look at how players anger might be justified.

Here is an except: "Clenching his fists on the podium, National Basketball Players Assn. President Derek Fisher delivered some sharp words.

"I want to make it clear that you guys were lied to earlier," Fisher said. "It's that simple."

Both the owners and players union have appeared guilty with inflaming the rhetoric. At this point, the players' union willingness to fight back may prove counterproductive. But forget for a second that the players have little leverage in this debate. They are completely justified in feeling angry with the owners continuously failing to negotiate in good faith.
