The owners and players are making progress on the embarrassing NBA Lockout, giving fans a sense that all hope is not lost for the NBA season. Both sides met with Federal Mediator, George Cohen, for more than 16 hours on Tuesday. The talks finally concluded at around 2am EST. Cohen has asked both sides not to make public comments. Reports indicate that the Cohen tried to keep the emotions off the table, and simply focus on what each side needs to get the deal done. Isn’t this what they should have been doing in July when this whole lockout started?
