Stoudemire is in constant communication with Knicks guard Roger Mason Jr., who is on the negotiating committee.
Mason tweeted yesterday, “Looking like a season. How u.” The tweet got major play until Mason deleted it and claimed his Twitter account was hacked. However, speculation is he sent it as a private message and hit the wrong button.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Thank God for Twitter.
The social networking site has provided the basketball world with its greatest clue that players and owners may be moving towards a new collective bargaining agreement.
New York Knicks union rep Roger Mason tried to alert teammate Amar’e Stoudemire that a season could be on the horizon. Unfortunately, he hit the wrong button, making what was supposed to be a private tweet available to the public.
This prompted Stoudemire to tell reporters he’s hearing good things about upcoming labour negotiations.
Accident or not, we’ll take it. It’s a sign - a good sign that basketball is coming. For now, that’s enough.
