The owners weren't blameless, but to me it was always much more on the players.

Yeah Yeah I know it was a lockout not a strike but the players knew they had to give back, and they didn't even bother to start seriously negotiating until December.
Knew? What union that you've ever heard of have ever volunteered to give anything back? Management--union employee contracts don't work that way. What is gained over years/decades of negotiations is never going to be just handed back for free and why would it and what would be the use of a union to its members if it made a habit of that?--why would anyone join?
