NBAers React to End of Lockout

A tweetcap.

You’ve already heard the news. The NBA lockout is over, and come Christmas, NBA basketball will be back. Yeah, a few details still need to be hashed out, but that’ll take place over the next couple of days and four weeks from now we’ll all be blissfully watching the best bball this planet has to offer. As expected, as soon as word got out, hordes and hordes of NBA players hit the tweets with their excitement—some fought sleep to stay awake and celebrate, some woke up hours later to the best info they’ve received in months, some were skeptical that all of this is really happening. Well, yes, it really is. Roll through the gallery above to see how all of your favorite players reacted on Twitter to the conclusion of the lockout.
