Nets' Site Has New Look: No Players

Search all you want on the Nets' official website. You won't find any images of Nets players. They were all taken down after midnight.  It's all part of the lockout.  Under the collective bargaining agreement, terminated by the owners, the  league had agreed to pay the union $25 million a year for the right to market the players' images...all players going back to 1998, when the first CBA covering such licensing went into effect.  No CBA, no images. Same for every NBA site. Even the Nets' Russian language page was scrubbed.

So enjoy the latest news on Barclays Center, Ben Couch's interview with Sergey Kushchenko, video of the Nets' dancers auditions or if you're realllly optimistic, use the site to buy season tickets for next season.
