The lockout’s over, y’all! Pop bottles! Get krizzled! I just made that last word up! Behold:

“We’ve reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations, but we’re optimistic that will all come to pass and that the NBA season will begin Dec. 25,” Commissioner David Stern said.

The article goes on to point out that the deal still must be ratified by both owners and players. I’m not entirely sure what “ratified” means but I’m guessing it refers to “celebrating harder than you ever have before.”

What does NBA basketball coming back mean to you? I’ll tell you one thing, six guys are jumping up and down on their beds and giggling in a Miami hotel room right now.

  1. I know what “tentative” means…but you would think (hope) that they wouldn’t announce anything unless they were very, very confident that the deal would be ratified/approved.

    Training camps are set to open Dec 9…I guess that means Matt Bonner is not going to be the guest for the Toronto podcast.

    So long #TBJ (blank), long live #TBJ (basketball) and keep up the good work #THJ

  2. My first thought: F**k yeah, the lockout’s over!

  17. It’s funny, I found out about this yesterday. Apparently for no reason whatsoever…I was playing 2k12 and decided to browse the internet for lockout news at 1am. Then…to my surprise I saw the good news on Yahoo! Sports. Needless to say, I played the rest of my game with more passion and went to sleep with a smile on my face. Okay, I guess this wasn’t funny like I stated earlier, but who cares, we have an NBA season! :D
