What's On NBA Team Websites Now That Lockout Is In Place?

As we noted before, the NBA has ordered the removal of any content from team websites that references any players during the NBA lockout. This caused NBA.com to look like a barren wasteland on Thursday night. But what has it done to NBA team websites? Below the jump, a look at what all 30 have resorted to with the lockout officially in place.

Atlanta Hawks: Top four stories promote "Labor Central," EXCLUSIVE coverage of the team's cheerleader auditions (COMING SOON!), the Kia Hoops Tour and 2011/12 Flex Ticket offers. The latter is rather unfortunate.

Boston Celtics: The nice thing about the Celtics is that they have tons of legends they can write about. So naturally, the lead story is a video interview with Larry Bird. The only weird part is that Bird is under contract as the Indiana Pacers' team president, and yet he's the leading face on another team's website. Lockout! Also, there are dance audition stories.

Charlotte Bobcats: Oh no, not this. That's unfortunate.

Chicago Bulls: Couldn't they have at least queued up their "Catching Up With Luc Longley" feature immediately?

Picture_184_medium

Cleveland Cavaliers: Nice and simple, with no mentions of new Cavalier Omri Casspi. That was a quick window for that news to be visible.

Dallas Mavericks: Rub it in a little more, guys.

Picture_186_medium

Denver Nuggets: That picture is a feature about a Kentucky Derby party. Old content at least beats no content.

Detroit Pistons: Oh, so that's where Chris Wilcox went. Awesome. Also, there's a video of Dennis Rodman being drafted by the Pistons that is worth watching.

Golden State Warriors: Hey, some actual news!

Picture_189_medium

Houston Rockets: As you may have guessed, the team store is still selling jerseys with player names on the back.

Picture_190_medium

Indiana Pacers: There's not much on the main page, but if you scroll down, there's an interview with Rik Smits from draft night. Woo!

Los Angeles Clippers: Goodbye, Blake Griffin KIA ad. Hello logo.

Picture_192_medium

Los Angeles Lakers: Actual news!

Picture_193_medium

Memphis Grizzlies: The lead story is about how the triple-overtime Game 4 vs. the Thunder in last year's playoffs was nominated for an ESPY. The Grizzlies lost that game.

Picture_194_medium

Miami Heat: Pool gear? Seriously?

Picture_195_medium

Milwaukee Bucks: Marketing Bango was a smart call, because Bango is awesome. Well done, Milwaukee.

Picture_196_medium

Minnesota Timberwolves: I can think of maybe five people in the entire world who want to catch up with Christian Laettner, and none of them reside in Minnesota.

Picture_197_medium

New Jersey Nets: Hey, let's put two seats to a horrible basketball team on a bridge. People will love that!

Picture_198_medium

New Orleans Hornets: Presented without context, this is a fun thing to photoshop.

Picture_199_medium

New York Knicks: Future installments of this include "How To Intimidate A Rookie, By Charles Oakley," "How To Use U-Stream, By Stephon Marbury," "How To Stay Out Of Shape, By Eddy Curry," and "How To Make Friends With Your Boss While Being Horrible At Your Job, By Isiah Thomas."

Oklahoma City Thunder: If I lived in OKC, I might actually go to this.

Picture_202_medium

Orlando Magic: This features Bo Outlaw. Heck yeah!

Picture_203_medium

Philadelphia 76ers: Might want to tone it down on the ticket promotions, guys.

Picture_204_medium

Phoenix Suns: Well, at least that headline will get people to click on the story. So there's that.

Picture_205_medium

Portland Trail Blazers: In every other part of the world, the year is 2011. In Portland, it is always 1977.

Picture_206_medium

Sacramento Kings: Because who doesn't want to see Fat Lever doing pushups.

Picture_207_medium

San Antonio Spurs: Nice subliminal work here to capture the perfect color of the lockout. So gloomy!

Picture_208_medium

Toronto Raptors: More old news.

Picture_209_medium

Utah Jazz: Instead of something on John Stockton or Karl Malone, we get something on Delaney Rudd. This actually interests me.

Picture_210_medium

Washington Wizards: I approve, only because "G-Man and the Secret Service Dunkers" is a hilarious name for a mascot and his team.
