Thursday, at 9 p.m. PT, the NBA owners will probably lock out the players, meaning no official practices, scrimmages, and, if it goes on long enough, no 2011-12 season.

In the worst-case scenario, meaning actual games are canceled, what are you going to do with your free time? The nights filled with watching Lakers games will be oh so empty. Will you switch allegiance to the Sparks? To another sport? Finally get around to painting the house? Buy a dog?

Let us know in the comments, or send an email to me at houston.mitchell@latimes.com. The best responses will be posted early next week in a post.

Don't worry, Mark Medina will be back next week. We let him have a vacation. All his begging and screaming for time off finally worked! I believe he is spending the next week in an isolation booth as far away from the Internet as possible.
