American sports fans might need some new hobbies soon: The NBA now has a lockout, too, along with the NFL. Basketball owners locked out players today when the latest talks to reach a collective bargaining deal failed, reports AP. The current contract expires at midnight, and the two sides remain far apart on every major issue, including a salary cap and revenue sharing. (Assuming a deal is struck, Bleacher Report has a look at what teams need to do this summer to win a championship.)
