The NBA players and owners have found a way to save Christmas for basketball fans with a tentative agreement which should have the players suited up for the last weeks games of 2011 and all of the 2012 basketball games. NBA tickets are now on sale and there are plenty of seats available for all remaining games with the late start to the NBA season.
The strike shortened season will have 66 games and kick off on Christmas Day with a triple-header. The final details should be worked out within the week and both David Stern and Billy Hunter agreed that the new agreement should go through. NBA fans can check their teams schedules for the final days of 2011 and the full 2012 schedule and buy NBA tickets now that the strike is over.
