These here are dark times. My Google Reader is all lockout everything. Taking a look at TweetDeck, it seems some progress was made today, but theyâ€™re not meeting tomorrow and the rest of the preseason will be cancelled soon, meaning more harm done to workers who have nothing to do with this mess. Whoopee.

At this point, I canâ€™t blame you if youâ€™ve lost yours, too, and have missed some of the other developments around the NBA. Me, Iâ€™m BRIâ€™d out. This is why Iâ€™m here to bring you a Metta World Peace update.
Sadly, World Peace is not on Dancing With The Stars anymore and he hasnâ€™t scheduled any more comedy shows, but heâ€™s always up to something, like challenging Kevin Durant in streetball. It seems his lockout plan is to gather a team of non-pro players in NYC and play ball for money. If you want to take his team on, you can email him, but he really wants to play against pro players.

Even when thereâ€™s cake involved.
