Sports: NBA Lockout takes off first 2 weeks of the NBA schedule BY: ERIC KANCHUGER

When the lock out started at the end of the NBA post season, no one thought the NBA 2011-2012 season would be shortened. With no collective bargaining agreement over months basketball fans would fear more and more of the 2011-2012 season being jeopardized. Now at October 10th, November is just around the corner. (Nov. 1 being the opening night.)

David Stern unfortunately moments ago had to already cancel the first 2 weeks of the NBA season ; To make bad news even worst Stern said “ that both the owners and the NBA are “both on very far apart issues” making the end to this lock out look nowhere close and the cancelation of even more weeks of the NBA season very likely.

Though fans across the nation and even the world are disappointed with the cancellation of the first 2 weeks, there is a problem in the NBA that has to be fixed for the better good. Obviously fans of big markets team are devastated by the lock out. From the other perspective fans from small market areas will not have to worry about their superstars and favorite players leaving their city to go join a super team like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and multiple others have done in roughly the past year.

Music News: Drake Pushes Back Release Date

Kind of a shocker, but fans anticipating Drake’s sophomore album, Take Care will have to wait another month. The album, set to drop on his birthday of October 24 has now been pushed back to November 15 due to sample clearance issues. This comes a few days after notifying fans the album was sent to mastering, Drake explains the delay below.

The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week…see you all soon.
