NBA Lockout Sticks Around but NBA Stars Plan 2-Week Tour

No, there hasn’t been any change with the NBA lockout.  It’s still on, but it seems that some of the NBA’s brightest are tired of sitting at home doing nothing.

Some of the league's top players are in the final stages of the planning a two-week exhibition tour during what would have been the first two weeks of the regular season, according to sources. Sources go on to say that final details are still being worked out, but it seems that more than a dozen of the league's best players are working to join forces on what would be a two-week, six-game blockbuster tour, very similar to the US Olympic Dream Team days. The players that are said to be involved include Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, Rajon Rondo, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Paul Pierce and Kevin Love. Kevin Durant and Kevin Garnett, among a few others, are also contemplating joining the tour. This is something that has been in the works for the last couple of months headed up by Atlanta business mogul, Calvin Darden, who has been working with the players’ agents to make this tour happen. Now don’t think that these guys are doing this for free, the players will be paid, receiving salaries ranging from six figures up to $1 million and some of the money generated by the tour will be donated to charity. Now many of the games will be played out of the U.S. but it’s sure to give some NBA fans a small fix until the NBA season gets underway. Your J.G.F., Marcelle English
