The owners chose to close down the league.

I don't support the lockout out.
But now that it's here, I support the owners losing the lockout badly, so that they don't do the same thing 5-6 years from now.
Fortunately the owners are smarter than you and realized that if they started a season with no CBA in place, the players would have gone on strike right as the playoffs would be set to start.
