YEAH BUDDY! It's finally over! After months and months of optimism/pessimism/girl-fights over issues such as BRI, MLE, and maximum number of Tony Battie's allowed on one team, the players and owners have a tentative agreement in place to begin the 2011-2012 NBA season on Christmas Day (December 25th dontchaknow).
For those of you on the east coast, I'm sure you didn't find out about the deal until you woke up this morning. When I checked my phone as soon as my eyes opened, I saw a text that just said "NBA!!!" and smiled from ear to ear.
Don't worry, this isn't a post concentrating on the all the details of the agreement because, honestly, I don't really care at this point. We're going to have a season and it starts in a month; that's the most important thing to me and the majority of basketball fans around the world.
So put on your Jrue Holiday shirsey, blast your favorite Louis Williams rap song, and lock all your windows and doors. The NBA is back, Jack!
Hit the jump for some celebratory songs that I've been bumping all morning and party with us in the comments. Love you guys! We're back!
