The MLB is entering a lockout period and the NBPA released a statement in support of their counterparts in baseball. 

"Not even close," said Adrian Wojnarowski when asked if the MLB lockout foreshadows potential labor issues in the future for the NBA.

Wojnarowski highlighted how the MLB has an adversarial relationship with its players currently unlike the NBPA in which they have successfully worked through a number of issues. 

The NBA and NBPA both want to get a deal done by December 2022 when both sides have a mutual out they can exercise for the 22-23 season.

"They have an interest in not having another lockout," said Ramona Shelburne.
