I couldn’t agree more. I went through the NHL lockout of 04-05 and learned the hard way. You have to constantly be in communication with your fans, your ticket holders and your corporate partners. In this situation, the only thing worse than bad news is no news at all.

I also agree you have to be in communication with your fans, but the way it is looking now there is probably not going to be an NBA season this year

It’s great that someone is taking a break from talking about the actual lockout to discuss the communication behind it. I agree that the Lakers organizations is doing a good job communicating its frustration, but I wonder if they could be even more specific. As a fan the language is so vague it still leaves me with tons of questions. Thanks for the post.

Thank God the NBA lockout is over so fans have something to hear about, other than grumpy old David Stern. I was very disappointed with the lack of communication between NBA organizations and their fans. I’m a huge Trail Blazer fan and all they’ve done in the off season is keep quiet. Do they really think that encourages their fans to purchase season tickets or team merchandise? I sure hope not.
