Depression Sets In II: 5 Songs Describing The NBA Lockout

By: 11.15.11  •  12 Comments

Remember when I said about a month ago we hit rock bottom with the NBA lockout? I lied. As of yesterday, we really hit rock bottom. Of course, there still remains a glimmer of hope God himself will hand deliver a miracle. But there’s also a chance Jerry Sandusky opens a daycare, too. In ways, yesterday’s outcome was something we’ve seen coming from a mile away; hell, even Billy Hunter tried to warn us months ago.

Still, there’s no real way to prepare yourself for a tragedy (and I mean “tragedy” in context). Since music is the language we all know and love, I present to you the second installment of “Depression Sets In.” On the following pages, five songs and a TSS bonus record help paint the picture of my sorrow of what could potentially be no basketball until the winter of 2012.

And if the world really does end next December, we’re all screwed.
