NBA Lockout Has Ended
It’s official, NBA fans. The lockout is over! Commissioner David Stern and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Executive Director Billy Hunter held a joint conference last night to announce that there will be a basketball season this year, and at least 10 more years after this. Training camps and free agency will start on December 9th and a season of 66 games will begin on Christmas Day, which will end the second longest lockout in league history.
â€œWeâ€™ve reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations,â€ Commissioner David Stern said. â€œbut weâ€™re optimistic that that will all come to pass, and that the N.B.A. season will begin on Dec. 25, Christmas Day, with a tripleheader.â€
There is one particular free agent that everyone is talking about: Kris Humphries. Everyone wants to know where Kim Kardashian’s husband of 72 days will end up. Jay-Z, owner of the Brooklyn Nets, made it known that he would like to resign Kris, but plenty of other teams in need of star power will be after him as well.
