Merry Christmas!

It’s over. I can’t believe it’s finally over. The NBA lockout has ended (tentatively) and my life has gotten somewhere between 49 and 51% better.

In the aftermath I’m sure some will analyze who won the deal. Others may wonder whether there will be any lingering negative effects or anger amongst the fanbase. Me? I say who cares. Basketball is back and that’s all that matters. I can immediately forget about all the other nonsense.

No more talk of BRI’s or system issues or escrow or luxury taxes or disclaiming unions and anti-trust suits. And to make it even better, with the NFL lockout in the rearview and MLB’s labor situation quietly resolved, we won’t have to deal with the word lockout and the surrounding babble that goes with it for the better part of a decade.

Now we can turn our attention to less boring and frustrating things. Like say…the Miami Heat act two, the last stand for Kobe’s Lakers and the Boston Celtics, the first promising Knicks season in years, the continued emergence of young stars like Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose, endless rumors surrounding Dwight Howard, Deron Williams and Chris Paul and whether his short time with Kim Kardashian will vault Kris Humphries to superstar status.

Because, as it turns out, Nuclear winters are no match for Christmas miracles.

(And since many on the internet seem impervious to sarcasm, I was kidding about the Kris Humphries one.)
