    I don't think it matters, so....

    Heard an interview with Union President Derek Fisher yesterday.  Seems the owners want a 10 year deal, with 900 million in roll back salaries.  Seems the players want a  5 year deal with 500 million in roll back salaries.  Seems the owners want non-or partially guaranteed contracts...........players say no way.  Seems the owners  want to share 57% of the profits with the players.....seems the players only want to reduce salaries 57%.

    It is not good, according to Mr. Fisher.  There will probably be a lockout - SO.........that being the case, I think the Celtics should seriously consider taking Nikola Mirotic with the 25th pick.  He can't play this year anyway, is said to have lottery-level talent.  Maybe buy him out next year, and he becomes our stretch 4 (kid can shoot!!)
    Sign Aaron Gray and Jamal Crawford as FA's.  Get something for Baby and take our chances IF there is a season!

    But, I don't think it matters who we are looking at right now!

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have a shortened season this year or maybe don't even play the entire season.  Similar to what is happening in the NFL.  Although, I expect the NFL situation will be settled soon.

    The NFL is not going to miss out on making any money from what I heard last night and today.

    The NBA will take some time, but will eventually get a deal done at the last minute so everyone will still get paid.

    It's all about the Benjamins, folks.

    Hope so, but don't see it - they are too many Benjamins apart - and don't even agree on the numbers!

    I also hope that some type of agreement can be made.  I would really hate if the NBA missed any games or missed the entire season.
