Finally. The NBA lockout, which never really made that much sense, is over. The NBA owners softened there stances are a number of key issues and a deal was reached early Saturday morning. While both sides have to vote to make this deal official, that is all just a matter of time.

Among the issues the owners softened on were rules regarding the mid-level exception, sign-and-trades and even the overall BRI split. In this deal, the players will get 51.2% in the first year.

While NBA commissioner David Stern warned the players that disbanding their union and filing a lawsuit was a bad idea, it turned out to be a great plan by the players. They got the key changes they want and didn’t have to miss much time in doing so.

Looking forward, we get to have a 66-game NBA season starting on Christmas day. For basketball fans around the globe, Christmas came early!
