The NBA lockout is under way. Luckily, players were given a 56-page Lockout Handbook last season to help them through the many pitfalls a work stoppage brings -- from the possible timeline of major events to dealing with the impact on player entourages. Really. It's in the handbook.
While we don't have a copy of the guide -- what with our not-being-an-NBA-player-ness -- we can at least imagine what the handbook's index page looks like.
