Call it wishful -- or delusional -- thinking.
The NBA today released its schedule for the 2011-12 season. (You know, the one that's about 80 percent unlikely to happen, due to the league's contentious lockout.)
Even the league's PR arm, NBA.com, couldn't ignore the elephant in the room.
NEW YORK -- The NBA today released its
complete game schedule and broadcast schedules of ABC, TNT, ESPN, NBA
TV, and NBA on ESPN Radio for the 2011-12 season, in the event that the
NBA is able to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with the NBPA
in a timely fashion.
Hint: It doesn't look like they will.
