Progress? I guess – the NBA owes its locked out players $160 million and apparently was ready to keep it hostage as a negotiating tactic, despite them owing the players this money under the old agreement. Not anymore.
Okay, enough of the posturing: Jodie Meeks is running a basketball camp, which many NBA players do over the summer. He’s also moved out of Philly and back home. Smart, considering his salary. It all comes full circle in the end.
