Smart move, IMO. This way, they get all the attention during the winter months, and insure that a season will be played next season.

How sad is it that Basketball is already preparing for a YEAR LONG hockey lockout? :(

LOS ANGELES -- The possibility of a long lockout in the National Hockey League influenced the NBA's decision to extend its collective bargaining agreement through the 2004-05 season, commissioner David Stern said Saturday.

"Frankly, the likelihood that the NHL was going to shut down for at least a season if they could not solve their problems ... was an element in our decision to exercise the option and run the deal for another year," Stern said at his annual All-Star news conference.

Have a Great Day! :) :flag:
