NBA Games Kick Off On December 25

After a 149-day lockout, with the first seven weeks done in by the labor dispute, National Basketball Association (NBA) Games will kick off on December 25.

The tournament will be shortened to 66 games and will end on April 26, then the play-offs will start two weeks after.

The agreement was forged over the Thanksgiving weekend, with the players guaranteed  51% of all basketball-related income (57% in the last CBA). The agreement is for 10 years but with each side having the right the opt out after six years. By then we just hope lockout will not happen again.
