NEW YORK — The media stakeout in the lobby of the hotel where the NBA labor talks are taking place is boredom at its ultimate level. As of 6 p.m. EDT, the negotiating session was approaching four hours … and counting.
The Players Association has a room set up with lighting and an NBPA banner, so you can expect a show of unity from them, custom-tailored for photographers and sound-bite lovers. Exactly when that news conference begins will shortly become the subject of a media gambling pool ($1 apiece, a tradition that dates to 1998).
Thankfully, Terry Boers and Dan Bernstein had me on their show this afternoon on 670-TheScore radio in Chicago to help break the monotony.
