Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh on SVU: NBA lockout broz continue to kill the game

At most, lockouts in American professional sports come around every 10-12 years.  It's usually a once-in-a-career opportunity for NHL, NFL, NBA, or MLB broz to go out and really switch things up, whether they'd like to or not.

Based on the fact that lockouts are rare, we as evaluators should consider ourselves lucky to be able to witness and compare two separate pro-sportz leagues' players' antics as they go through lockouts in the same year - the NFL and NBA.

In the NFL lockout, which is obviously over, we thought we'd seen it all: 

It's safe to say that the NFL lockout produced a majority of negative antics.

But the NFL lockout is over, and the NBA lockout, which started 30 days before the NFL lockout ended (exactly 90 days ago) has assumed the position, and, interestingly enough, the NBA players have been handling the situation in a far more positive manner than their NFL sportz-pro broz...

In fact, theyr're actually being extremely positive.

Instead of making negative headlines, NBA players like Deron Williams, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant have maintained positive reputations by treading international territories, becoming European and Asian ambassadors of the game - even more so if China would stop being so stubborn.

And of course it is worth noting that players the likes of Kevin Durant, Brandon Jennings, Ron Artest, Trevor Ariza and Jamal Crawford, just to name a few, are domestically participating in some Drew-ber-cool summer leagues.

Compared to the negative antics of the NFL lockout the NBA is killing it.

Just three days ago it was announced that Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh were to make cameo appearances as themselves in the hit NBC show "Law & Order: SVU," in an episode called, Personal Fouls.

Thats what I'm talking about NBA! That's called blowing Peyton and Eli Manning's, "Football Cops" film production completely out of the water!

Reppin' the game, and doing it well - performance pending.

To wrap it up:

Aside from the Crittenton Killer  (who isn't really worth mentioning because he wasn't even in the NBA at the time of his arrest on August 29, 2011) the NBA broz have handled the lockout far more positively than the NFL broz.
