This weekend we learned that the NBA lockout we’ve been suffering through is finally over, as team owners and NBA players reached an agreement that will give us a shortened basketball season starting at the end of December.
We’re so happy about the lockout being over we’re dedicating this week’s Mystery Player contest to a veteran player who was highly involved in the negotiations. Look at the clues below and guess who you think it is by posting a comment:
