Bulls Website Stripped Down For NBA Lockout lockout.PNG

NBA owners shut down their league at midnight, pulling the trigger on their long-planned lockout of the players.

So until this gets resolved, league and team websites can no longer include any mention of the players.

That means, three-plus hours past Armageddon, looks like it was designed by a 10th-grader in 1998, and is similarly stripped of the player names, news and photos that dominated the site just a few hours ago. Links to the team roster and stats redirect to the homepage, as does the section on Michael Jordan. (But Scottie Pippen's page is still there, probably because he is now a front office employee.)

Get ready for lots and lots and lots of stories about Tom Thibodeau, Benny the Bull and those fat guys who dance during timeouts.
