This is an interesting look at the 1999 50 game season after that lockout. "Charles Barkley, of course, had the greatest takes on the season: "I can't play three days in a row. I can't have sex three days in a row... Those guys that you normally play 10 or 12 minutes a night are playing 25 minutes a night because there are so many games, and they can't play." Jeff Van Gundy: "Players weren’t in shape. Teams weren’t given ample time to get their teams ready to play at a high level. More injuries were suffered." Jonathan Abrams: "What ensued was some of the worst basketball ever seen in the modern era...Teams averaged just 91.6 points in 1998-99, down 4 points from a season earlier, and the lowest output since the inclusion of the shot clock. Van Gundy’s Knicks made a record-low 19 field goals in a game against Chicago. The Bulls scored 49 points in a game against Miami. The Knicks and Hawks combined for 19 points in a quarter of one game."
