The NBA lockout is finally over and we can now start talking about basketball rather than labor meetings.
After an unforgettable free agency class of 2010, which some people believed caused the lockout to drag for over 100 days, we are facing yet another talented class. Although this year’s players are not on the same level as LeBron James and Amar’e Stoudemire, the fact that the period will start on the same day as training camps will result in a complete frenzy.
The Lakers and the other 28 teams in the NBA who could not reach the championship level that the Mavericks did, need to improve their rosters and hope to sign a few players before the Christmas season tip-off. The Mavs are also in limbo as many of their key pieces from the 2010-11 championship team are free agents and may head out of Dallas.
