NBA Board of Governors ratify 10-year CBA
December 8, 2011

NEW YORK -- The NBA Board of Governors has ratified a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement, enabling training camps and the free agency period for the 2011-12 season to begin on Fri., Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. ET. As previously announced, the NBA will begin its 66th season on Christmas Day.

"I am pleased to announce that we have concluded the collective bargaining process and have reached an agreement that addresses many significant issues that were challenges to our league," said NBA Commissioner David Stern. "This collective bargaining agreement will help us move toward a better business model, a more competitive league and better alignment between compensation and performance."

The agreement includes a 50-50 split of basketball-related income, a higher luxury tax with progressive tax rates and the retention of a soft salary cap system. The maximum length of player contracts will be five years (previously six) and maximum annual increases in salaries will be 7.5% for teams re-signing their own players and 4.5% for teams signing other teams' free agents.

On non-economic issues, the league has bolstered its drug program to include offseason testing, increased penalties for violations involving performance-enhancing drugs, and blood testing for human growth hormone

(HGH) once the test is validated by a neutral panel of scientific experts.

Beginning this season, teams can assign veteran players with their consent to the NBA Development League and, effective with the 2012-13 season, there will be no limit on the number of times players with three years or less of experience can be assigned to their team's NBA D-League affiliate.

Interesting day of basketball yesterday -- so very grateful that the season finally started 

As a result of the lockout and lack of 'practices' it's going to take a while for some of the teams to 'gel' with all of the player changes. And some of the early injuries will also have impact once they return. I'm not sure yesterday was an indication of how the teams will really perform once the season gets into the groove.

All jmo.

But I was in all my glory with 5 games to watch. 

And Santa heard my prayers -- there were tickets for 3 home games waiting for me in my stocking.

Also wanted to add -- I thought the new NBA commercials were awesome.

I guess something good came out of all the 'downtime' -- at least for the ad agencies. lol

Whoo -hoo!!   Feast and famine! 

You must have been a very, very good girl this year if you got tickets for 3 home games in your stocking! 

Tonight it's Rockets VS Magic, and I'll be rooting for the Rockets.  GO ROCKETS!!

I take nothing for granted --  let the games begin   

(I have a picture I need to find and post -- of the Mav's getting their trophy in June .... in D Wade's house. We were there)
