HEAT Check: Washington Post Predicted 2011 NBA Lockout in 1998

Multiple posts at the Miami Heat Index said the National Basketball Players Association was following a similar strategy the Major League Baseball Players Association used in 1994 but none of them were 13 years ahead of the curve like Washington Post columnist Thomas Boswell.

Boswell's a baseball expert that saw similarities between the NBA's labor struggles and MLB problems. So similar in fact, that he predicted during the 1998 lockout that the next work stoppage in the NBA would be like the 1994 MLB work stoppage.

Check out the present: Why the NBPA Strategy Can End the Lockout

Everybody screaming that the players will lose should ask MLB how their work stoppage in 1994 worked out for the players.
