Later today in what can either be described as a "thumbing their noses at us," or "slapping us in the face," move, the NBA will release the schedule for the 2011-2012 season. Typically, this is the day when I take a look and try to pinpoint a couple games I'm going to buy tickets for. It's just another step to build the excitement for the upcoming season. This year, it's just cruel.
Who am I kidding, I'll still take a look, if only to add more kindling to my bonfire of disappointment over the lockout. At least we can check the schedule for the games we're going to miss the most as the lockout drags on.
Since the NBA was kind enough to broach the whole calendar subject, though, let's talk about a date. When do you guys think the lockout will end?
