Charlotte: Antawn Jamison was a rookie the last time the NBA locked out its players in a labor dispute. As the Cleveland Cavaliers forward prepares for a second work stoppage, he senses a key element missing from 13 years ago: player unity.
"You had guys saying one thing and you had other guys going behind their back and saying another thing," Jamison said on Thursday of the 1998 lockout. "The owners knew then they eventually would buckle."
This time, Jamison insists the players are prepared, educated and willing to sacrifice an entire season instead of giving into the owners' demands.
