So, it’s on, or rather it will be as of midnight, but make no mistake things are going to get ugly before they get better. 

If you are reading up on basketball blogs, you know all too well that the NBA off season is long so there’s still plenty of time to work things out without jacking up next year, but there may also be too little time depending on how seriously the parties take this situation.

The two sides have agreed to meet again in two to three weeks, which I personally hope is a long enough period of time for both the Players and Owners to take their heads out their asses and get to work to hash this thing out.
