Fall Sports Preview: the NBA and NFL

Monday, November 28, 2011

NBA players and owners have reached an agreement, ending a lockout that began July 1 of this year. Players have agreed to a seven percent pay cut in basketball-related income, and will play a shortened 66-game season, while owners have made concessions on annual raises and the mid-level exception.

Meanwhile, the NFL season is currently underway, with big wins for the Jets, Patriots, Steelers, and Raiders. Takeaway sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin provides insight into the NBA deal and a summary of what's going on in football.
