an NBA lockout on July 1 "discouraging."  Brickowski: "Falk and
Kessler have their own agenda, and I'm not entirely sure that
agenda is for the players as a whole. The biggest hurdle for the
players is the lack of concern.  We have the undivided attention
of those who are going to be free agents and that's it" (USA
