8 NBA Teams That Benefit Most From The Lockout

Now that the NBA's Nazi Commissioner David Stern has officially cancelled the first two weeks of the NBA season, all we can do now is pray that a season actually starts. The L and the players did just have 16 hour talks yesterday, so it's nice to know that they're at least making it seem like they give a f*ck. I'd be happy with a shorter season anyway because it's the playoffs that really matter. Even if the season doesn't happen, at least we have NBA 2k12 to fill the void. I'm sure that a few NBA teams are actually happy about the lockout - there are a bunch that actually benefit from a shorter regular season. Check out who those teams are after the jump.
