I'm hoping Bettman steps down soon after this
I doubt that this would deter them as they lost the whole season last time.

I hope that this time the League will close whatever loopholes might
lead to another lockout being necessary.

In any case the NBA and the NFL also went for a lockout this year, I think it is either get an agreement before hand or have a lockout, no league will start a season with no CBA and hope for the best.
