NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA players’ association has filed an unfair labor charge against the league with the National Labor Relations Board, a move it hopes could block a lockout.

The union says the NBA has engaged in unfair labor practices throughout the collective bargaining process and seeks “an injunction against the NBA’s unlawful bargaining practices and its unlawful lockout threat.”

The charge was filed Tuesday with Region 2 of the NLRB.

The NBA and players are trying to reach a deal for a new collective bargaining agreement before the June 30 expiration of the current one.

    I hope they get locked out, because then we might get some NON-NBA players that actually are hungry for an opportunity to play, unlike the Laker Team that STUNK up the playoffs.

    Oklahoma City has been much more fun to watch. It’s time to trade KOBE now, while he is still somewhat valuable. I’m tired of seeing him SABOTAGE the team, with his selfish ways and constant dripping into crowds and losing the ball or jumping in the air, out of control and throwing the ball away.
