All the fans wanted was a deal.
I was interested in seeing who would get the better of the deal. I think DeMaurice Smith did an excellent job for the players. He didn’t back down from the owners and played every single card in the deck to get the best deal possible.
Here is a summary from SI.com
It is a very fair deal in which the players and owners will make a ton of money. The rookie salary scale will put pretty much an end to rookie hold outs which was something I strongly wanted to happened.
When the Lockout first started I said it would probably end late July early August. They don’t call me Robstadamous for nothing.
