Links: NBA Lockout? It's (Tentatively) All Over, Over There!

I'm not crying. It's just been raining...on my face.

Which is really too bad, as we were planning a wonderful series on the pros and cons of a vegan diet for pro athletes. I suppose you'll just have to suffer as we get back on track to our regularly scheduled programming. Anyone else feel like they just drank a gallon of espresso? Hotbox!

    "We expect our labor relations committee to endorse this deal, this tentative agreement, and we expect our Board of Governors, at a meeting we will call after that, to endorse the deal," commissioner David Stern said Saturday at a 3:40 a.m. ET news conference that followed a 15-hour negotiating session at a Manhattan law firm. "And we expect that a collective bargaining agreement will arise out of this deal as well."
  • Stern: "We’ve reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations." Also, Adam Silver takes picture with fan, has one. [Howard Beck]

  • Came this close! [Tom Ziller]
    Reports had indicated that without a deal by the end of the weekend, Stern may have opted to cancel the entire season rather than repeat 1999, when a 50-game season began in February.
  • Stern: "We're very pleased we've come this far," Stern said. "There's still a lot of work to be done." [TIME]
  • 'Stern, after more than 27 years as the league’s commissioner, hoped to close a deal much sooner but was committed for fighting for the owners’ wishes even at the risk of damaging his legacy.' Hero! [Washington Post]
  • Mr. Michael Lee will not be denied! His take on where we stand. [Michael Lee]
  • More as events warrant.
