    I hope no one gets comfortable. This is going to be another 9 hour meeting...maybe more.


    I frankly don't think they come out until there is a deal in principle. Both sides know what it as stake. They both know how demtramental to the game it would be if they become the first league to cancel an entire season because is a labor dispute.

    They both know that they will have a golden opportunity to get back some next season when the NBA has their lockout and they become the only game in town.

    I feel like I'm 5 years old and it's Christmas Eve...I just wish I could fall asleep so I could wake up tomorrow and see what happened.

    What sucks is that yesterday at least I had several classes and some errands to do to keep me away from the boards all day. Today, just one class. Grrr.
