In a shocking developement late Thursday night, the owners and players are now “withing striking distance” of completing a deal that would end the NBA Lockout. Sources have said both sides have confirmed that Friday is a day that could strike a deal between the two sidese. This news almost seems inconceivable after the talks broke down in ugly fashion last week.
Both sides know that if they are going to have a full 82-game season (or close to one), they need to complete a deal by early next week. That is why today is a very important day. I think everyone is sick of hearing and reading about these talks, the only thing left to do is cross your fingers and hope they come through.
In the meantime, I’m going to contemplate Shawn Kemp’s Top 10 dunks.
