14 Mayors Sign Letter Urging End To NBA Lockout

You think you miss NBA basketball? Think about how much the mayors of cities like Salt Lake City and Sacramento, who count on NBA games to bring much-needed revenue into town, feel about the lockout?

Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, Sacramento Mayor (and former NBA star) Kevin Johnson an 12 other mayors from NBA cities have signed an open letter to the NBA and the players, hoping to persuade the two sides to resolve the labor-deal impasse and get the 2011-12 season going.

We are proud to call our cities home to NBA franchises. As basketball fans, we know winning and losing is part of the game. Rest assured; everyone loses if there is no season.

The mayors don't know what impact, if any, their letter will have. However it's once again a nice reminder that the millionaires at the middle of this debate aren't the only ones missing out on money right now.
