Decertification means no more union, which means no more CBA. It also opens the league up to anti-trust suits. Players can challenge (in court) the legality of the lockout. Furthermore, they can challenge things like the salary cap, draft, free agency rules, entry level deals, and other contractual limits established under the CBA.
Players would negotiate individual contracts. Upside: greater flexibility for the players in negotiations, and the league can't lock them out. Downside: players aren't guaranteed anything; there's no minimum salary, there's no guaranteed benefits, etc.
