As we enter what could be another lengthy day of bargaining, here are a couple of interesting articles. From SLAM, a great Q&A with 76ers' point guard Jrue Holiday: Q&A. From NBA.com, a great interview with union economist Kevin Murphy, outlining some of the key components/obstacles in these negotiations: NBA economics.

More later as we get settled at NBA Lockoutville.
