There's a familiar refrain that almost everyone uses when they talk about the NBA lockout: "millionaires vs. billionaires."

It's a populist phrase implying that these two sides should get over themselves and work out a deal, because they're both making a bajillion bucks anyway.

NBA owners are generally in a separate economic class, based on the relative awesomeness of their houses. But the NBA's biggest stars give them a run for their money.
