NBA lockout is over; Players back to work
The NBA season has come upon us like a sucker punch to the jaw. After 149 days of negotiations between the players and owners, a deal was reached on November 28, 2011 to start the NBA season.

But at least we don’t have to watch re-runs of old NBA games on the NBA channel anymore.
