The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association negotiated Wednesday for eight hours past the league’s stated 5 p.m. ET deadline for a deal and made sufficient-enough progress to schedule another round of talks for Thursday.
Thursday’s talks began shortly before 1 p.m. ET. The two sides are meeting again in small groups, working to try to find a way to save the season.
Does it really matter if yours truly is optimistic or pessimistic at this point? I’ll keep you guys posted if anything positive comes from these talks.
