Guys? Real basketball. REAL FREAKING BASKETBALL.
Late Friday night, Ken Berger of CBS Sports tweeted what every NBA fan had been dying to hear since June. The NBA and NBPA have reached a tentative agreement.
BREAKING: Tentative agreement reached, according to one of the negotiators.
Note: there are quite a few issues that need to be worked through yet. For starters, both the players and owners have to vote to pass the deal. Then it needs to be put in writing. Then comes the insanity that will be free agency.
But if all goes according to plan, we will see the first games of the season on December 25.
It’s too late for me to think clearly about…well…anything, honestly. You know what this means. This means Derrick Williams and Ricky Rubio. This means more Kevin Love. This means I GET TO COVER ACTUAL TIMBERWOLVES GAMES, AND I NO LONGER HAVE TO PRETEND I CARE ABOUT THE NFL.
I’m tentatively so excited I can barely breathe.
