N.B.A. and Players Reach Tentative Deal to End Lockout
On a frantic Black Friday in Midtown Manhattan, the biggest deal was consummated in a law office tucked between FAO Schwartz and the Apple Store, according to one of the negotiators.
With a few handshakes, and surely a few sighs, the N.B.A. and its players resolved a crippling labor crisis, paving the way to reopen their $4 billion-a-year business in time for the holidays.
Resolution came on the 148th day of the lockout. With a deal in hand, the N.B.A. plans to start the season on Christmas Day and play a 66-game schedule.
