NBA fans finally have something to look forward to. After a 149-day lockout it appears the NBA Players Union and Owners have reached a deal to start the season on Christmas Day. With a couple of kinks to finalize, this season will drop down to 66 games from the normal 82.
Local residents have mixed feelings about the lockout ending.
“I don’t care because I think they are all a bunch of spoiled brats and they get paid millions and millions of dollars to do a job and they won’t do it,” Said Naperville resident Christina King.
“I’m excited to watch it. I think Rose is a great player. I’m excited to watch him,” Said Carol Stream resident Jeremy Walton.
“I’m happy that it’s over. It’s exciting to watch basketball on TV and I’m just happy they are getting back into it,” said Dana Rex, a Naperville Resident.
“I got a lot of mixed emotions. I love basketball and I actually have season tickets myself. I’m a little disappointed in the strikes and the fighting over all the money they get as it is,” said Naperville resident Dominic Imburgia.
“I feel like a lot of people I know don’t care anymore. I feel like they lost a lot of fans. People aren’t as interested anymore,” said Mary Daudalin, a Naperville resident.
There will be three games on Christmas day including the Bulls tipping off in Los Angeles against the Lakers.
