NBA Lockout: NBA fans should be thanking Judge Nelson for lifting the NFL lockout Monday. Even though the case still has to go to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, the verdict apparently had an immediate impact on the impending NBA lockout, writes Ken Berger of CBS Sports. “NBA owners intend to submit a revised collective bargaining proposal to the players by Friday and are hopeful the document will ‘get the conversation going,'” which is code for “damn, there’s no way we’re winning in court, time to make some concessions.” It is a much more optimistic read than the gloomy NBA lockout stories I read last weekend in the Washington Post and LA Times.
