Win Suns tickets, T-shirt by guessing when NBA lockout will end

Posted by on October 28th, 9:58 am

Billy Hunter believes the players and owners are “within striking distance” of a deal, but as Derek Fisher cautioned, “It gets tougher towards the end.”

Every NBA fan must be overjoyed that progress appears to have been made, but any pragmatic follower understands there’s still much compromise to accomplish on the thorny BRI issue that plagued these negotiations so last week.

Therefore, it’s still anyone’s guess when labor peace will be made and NBA play will resume. But if you guess the right date in our ValleyoftheSuns Facebook contest you can win tickets to the Suns’ first home game, courtesy of StubHub, and a ValleyoftheSuns T-shirt, courtesy of ooShirts.

In case of a tie, we will hold a tiebreaker contest to break it. If you are not on Facebook, e-mail me at mschwartz at valleyofthesuns dot com to gain entry.

    Posting on here too just in case:

    Suns first home game will be on December 21 against the T-Wolves (my pick for no other reason than that is the last home game of this season I’ll be in town for and it marks the triumphant return to Arizona of Derrick Williams).

    Thanks for your helpful post. In renect times, I have been able to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by the particular build up connected fluid relating to the lining of your lung and the chest cavity. The sickness may start while in the chest spot and get distributed to other areas of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include losing weight, severe inhaling trouble, vomiting, difficulty eating, and swelling of the neck and face areas. It really should be noted that some people with the disease usually do not experience every serious signs or symptoms at all.
