NBA Lockout Hurting Businesses

[ORANGE COUNTY, Fla — The Orlando Magic was supposed to be hosting the Charlotte Bobcats at 7 p.m. for the first game of the NBA season Wednesday night.

Instead, streets of downtown Orlando were empty as the NBA lockout continued. As a result, Orlando businesses said they are enduring financial hardships.

Opening day of the NBA season last year had restaurants and bars packed full of "Blue and White Ignite" faithful.

But it's day 125 of the labor dispute between the players and the owners.]
