It looks like one lockout is ending very soon. How predictable.
Photo of the Day
NBA 2K12 will feature non-active NBA players on the cover. Not a shock. Here’s the one with MJ – Larry Bird and Magic Johnson will also be featured on covers.
Contract of the Day
Carlos Boozer is slated to make $13.5 million next year. He has 3 more years (each with a salary of $15 million-plus) on his contract following that. I’m sure Bulls fans are thrilled with that.
Links of the Day
Lawrence Frank looks to be the new Pistons coach, per Marc Stein.
Kobe Bryant wants the Turkish fortune.

Something to Watch
Just stay indoors – it’s too hot outside. Or go to the movies and see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II again, because it’s air conditioned.
