It's Friday night and it's time for some good feelings, you guys. Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski has talked to an official who has been briefed on how NBA lockout talks have gone Friday in New York City. These two tweets provide your daily dose of optimism:
From official who's talked w/ people in room: More than one previously hardline owner, including Dan Gilbert, has come wanting to make deal. Nevertheless, there's still no concrete information on whether the owners and players have made real progress. Yet, the vibe isn't bad.
Vague good news is better than vague bad news. While reports have varied recently as to whether guys like Robert Sarver were really willing to concede a season to get a preferable deal, Gilbert has always been seen as a staunch hawk on the issues driving the lockout. Having him amenable to compromise and -- joy of joy, basketball! -- would be a great thing, indeed.
