The lockout continues on and makes it difficult for blogger-types like myself to write about Spurs-related goodness. To counter the lockout-induced writer’s block, I invited Beckley Mason of HoopSpeak to join the 4-Down Podcast this week and talk about the latest in NBA labor strife.

Tuesday was supposed to be the day of days when it comes to the lockout, and in a way it was. But it was also a big ol’ tease. According to David Stern, we’ve got until Monday before the first couple weeks of the NBA season are cancelled. Beckley and I talk about the threat of cancelled games, and how different things are from the 1998-99 NBA lockout.

We also take some time to talk about the death of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, because nothing makes talking about a professional sports work stoppage more trivial than talking about actual life and death.
