Ladies and gentlemen, I've been waiting along time to say this, but...the NBA lockout is over!
It took over three months of nothing happening and then another month of meetings going into late hours of the night, and it has seemingly cost us the 2011 part of the 2011-12 season, but the damn thing is finally over.
There will be a lull of any action for a few days while the lawyers draw up all the paperwork and the two sides meet to sign the new contract, but essentially, we are out of the woods.
The next step, of course, will be an ultra-abbreviated offseason and a quick period of free-agent signings, followed by a short preseason and finally, real live basketball.
However, the thing I'm most interested in right now is the flurry of free-agent signings that is going to be happening as soon as the "offseason" starts up.
Who is the top priority for each team, you ask?
Well, you came to the right place to have that question answered, my good friend.
