    as you may be finding out, the owners and players association have come to a tentative agreement to end the lockout.

    if ratified by the respective sides, training camp and free agency would begin on december 9, and a 66-game season would begin on Christmas Day,

    There are a lot of details and work to be taken care of, but the light at the end of the tunnel has gotten brighter. i have my own feelings on the reports and interviews i've heard. i'd like to share them after hearing from some of you.

    I'm just happy there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. After I had started to fear that we wouldn't have a season this year, 66 games will be a wayyyy better time than 0.

    Mostly, I'm just happy that BOTH sides (the Owners AND the Players) finally remembered this isn't just a business, it's a sports league, and the Fans are far more important than either of their respective checkbooks.

    Back to basketball now please.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
