2011 Toronto Raptors/NBA/Labour Negotiations Spectacular

Not much to say here, I suppose. A missed season may actually work in the Raptors favor. I'm down on the team slightly because of their draft day decision but, well, in for a penny in for a pound as they say.

As to the labour front, people should be reading Malcolm Gladwell on the ridiculousness of the NBA's stance:

I tried to make these arguments during the NHL lockout but, well, I'm no Malcolm Gladwell.

I am actually reading it right now. It's not as humourous as his online stuff, at least not yet. However, it's an excellent read. Well written, and interesting. I've only just started, but it'll be one I don't put down till I'm done, I suspect.
