Is lockout harder on some NBA players?
NBA players are moving to disband their union, which jeopardizes play this season even further. How are NBA players reacting via Twitter? A few seem concerned about losing their livelihood. Some are taking advantage of the time to kick back or improve themselves. Their reaction seems to vary by how much time they've had to establish themselves in the league.
