    Restrained enthusiasm for me.

    I am very interested in seeing the details of the new CBA (i.e. Cap, free agent exceptions, grandfather clauses, etc). I am hearing the cap will be the same this year, $58 mil.

    I've been checking every day to see if they reached a deal. I was beginning to think the players and owners will never reach an agreement. Can't wait till the season begins.

    Also very curious as to what the Knicks roster will look like before the season. We will see some action to rosters forming on December 9th, I'm hyped up.

    That's great to see you all back here, during the lockout we got just 4-5 active users...

    About time, I am pretty sure the players gave in since they had more to lose in this with their only out a favorable judgement in their anti-trust case. That anti-trust case would have been a high risk move that would have cost most if not all of the season and pissed off the owners to give the players jack.

    Let's cross our fingers and hope that the majority of NBA players are reasonable people and vote for this despite giving back so much of the last CBA.

    Great news. I missed you guys.

    Now we can go out and trade for CP3, D12. Sign Chandler, Barrea & Nene. Just kidding. Got a little overly excited there for a moment...

    Lol, oh how I longed to discuss the Knicks chances at redemption, and a second time pulling off a miracle run to the finals after a lockout.

    Glad to see the gang back! And so quickly.

    My dad told me the news when I got home. I didn't know if he was serious at first so I asked him again. I was surprised. Totally didn't expect this today!

    You can imagine how I felt, I had gave up hope after the second time they cried wolf. Then yesterday, I read about them meeting needing a deal this weekend for Xmas games and I kept my hopes down. By 12 last night I was following Chris Broussard's twitter -___-. He tweeted something about a joint presser(dead giveaway for positive news) and I immediately went to ESPN an there it was, I went coocoo.

    If the season does start on December 25, I'll be one happy mother****er. Knicks-Celtics. Time to get some payback and prove that we can beat these guys.

    I'll be wishing for a Knicks win this Christmas (and maybe a few chickenwings on Garnett for tripping TD in Game 1)

    If we acquire a reasonable center, if MW make our deffense work, if Melo and STAT will do their best and if our backup players make some numbers, we can beat the C's.
    Many "ifs" but I hope they can work out those things.

    Turiaf will start and Jordan/Jorts will be backups....we can deal with it for a little while but we should use the MLE on a center
