Today the sports world has announced that the NBA has reached a tentative deal to save the season. Professional basketball is now back, with a new labor deal that without a doubt favors the owners. Saturday morning six men rose from their seats with their expressions illustrating the conclusion to the NBA's five-month labor crisis. Though it has been a long, dragged out and grueling process, both sides were able to put their differences aside and come to a common ground. Nearly a month of action has already been missed, thus leaving the amount of games to be played shortened. The season's first games will be played on Christmas day with league power houses going head to head. 66 games will be the total games on each franchise's schedule this season. That being said, PLAY BALL!
