Our long national nightmare is finally over.
No, I am not talking about the Republican campaign for the Presidential nomination, but the NBA lockout that for a time flirted with what would have been a disastrous cancellation of the 2011-2012 NBA season. But at the last minute a deal was made, and in the words of the legendary Walt Frazier, their will be swishin' and dishin' and posting and toasting in the NBA this year.
Now that the labor issues are settled, and (most of) the wheeling and dealing is done, the National Basketball Association is set to embark upon its season with a full slate of marquee games on Christmas day.
And since the Association represents probably the most interesting, compelling, and downright fun set of characters, storylines, and athletes in professional sports today, the HR Happy Hour show in partnership with The 8 Man Rotation, (Kris Dunn, Tim Sackett, Matt Stollak, Lance Haun, Steve Boese), will devote the final show of 2011 to a full-on, no lame attempts to tie sports back to work or HR, preview of the upcoming season.
What will the late start, short training camps, and compressed schedule mean for the league? What teams made the sharpest moves in the off season? What clubs are ready to win now? What teams might just surprise this year? What players are on the decline and who is on the rise?
The teams, the players, and the predictions for the NBA in 2012 - you will hear it all and more on the HR Happy Hour Show this week.
The NBA - this week on the HR Happy Hour. It will be a fun departure for the show this week and I hope you will join us!
