With much fanfare and celebration on the internet, so it was that thousands of NBA fans received the news of the end of the lockout of the greatest basketball league on the planet on Saturday morning. However, not everyone has shown to have been excited, starting with Leandro (Barbosa), Toronto Raptors and the athlete who is playing for Flamengo during the NBA lockout.
The wing-guard did not hide a certain frustration at having to leave the city where his family is living just at Christmas time:
“Man, I got news for my wife. I was sleeping and she was at the hairdresser. She called me and woke me up crying already. It was a thud. We did not expect, we were planning a big Christmas with family and do not think it will happen. It is not yet official, but it’s a shame,” Barbosa said.
