It is now nearing the beginning of November, still the NBA has yet to take the court. As the lockout nears the beginning of its’ fourth month, only in recent days has any progress been made. But wait, NBA Commissioner David Stern is expected to make an announcement today!
Are we (the fans) in luck? Will he announce that a deal has been agreed upon? With reports that the sides are getting closer, this wouldn’t seem that far-fetched. But alas, in is not to be. I regret to inform that the announcement is expected to be concerning the cancellation of more games. Our fear that basketball wont begin until after Christmas (if at all this season) is one step closer to being realized.
The fact that in the past two days, the players union and the league and owners have met for a combined 22.5 hours may generate some optimism. But they have seemed close before, and still there is no deal.
