NBA Owners and Players Reach Tentative Agreement to End Lockout

Common sense finally paid off.  After months of posturing and negotiations, the NBA owners and players have reached an agreement to end the NBA lockout.  If the deal is approved, the season will tip off on Christmas Day.  Training camps will open December 9th.

Of course, there are still some hurdles.  The NBPA must reform before voting and the majority of players and owners need to be on board.  However, I feel that most of the people involved just want to get back to basketball.  The season will consist of 66 games, which might be a blessing in disguise.  Many fans complain about the length of the season, so this can only help.

I’m glad that common sense prevailed.  The NBA was coming off its best season since Jordan retired and they looked poised to throw it all away.  A lot of the details on the agreement have not been released yet, but I believe the owners won this deal by a lot.

I will have more on this in the coming days, but NBA fans everywhere can rejoice.  Basketball is back and it’s going to be on heck of an offseason once it starts.  Free agency will be fast and furious and so will the games.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
