Well the new labor deal is "officially" done. I have it in quotes because there aren't any official details released yet. Sources are just reporting that the deal is in place, all sides have agreed to everything, and the season is set to go Christmas Day. Huzzah! I'll put up the details of the deal as soon as I hear the "official" news of what exactly is in it.
In other, sadder news, Caron Butler has signed a deal to play with Clippers next year. R.I.P. Caron. You had a lot of potential and it just never happened.
