First, the newly approved Sixers owner Josh Harris has promised to slash over 9,000 ticket prices in half in order to start tilting die-hard Philadelphia fans back to the Wells Fargo Center for basketball.
Secondly, the NBA owners and players met Wednesday for 16 consecutive hours with a federal mediator. That can only mean good things (Right?).
Finally, Sixers fans should still be basking in the glory of what Lou Williams did last Saturday evening, upstaging Kevin Durant and John Wall in leading the underdog Team Philly to victory. In particular it was Williams’ defense and not even the 53 point scoring outburst that had writers buzzing.
I’m not an upper echelon journalist – yet – to have met with Josh Harris or David Stern. But I did deliver on the Lou Williams end.
If somehow, someway the NBA returns in mid-November, I hope we get to see more than 23 minutes per game out of Williams.
We all know he’s been a streaky player in the past, but take one look and you can see that Louis has been busting his butt this off-season in hopes of a big year in 2011-12 season — if the season ever tips off.
