NBA Media Day: Where Art Thou?

2

Ordinarily the big NBA media day is the day prior to starting training camp. All players are required to show up, go through media interviews, pose for a season's worth of team PR pictures, and usually take physicals behind the scenes. One fun part the last two years has been Casey Holdahl doing an online video interview with each player while taking questions from fans. Nate usually has a team dinner to kick off training camp the night of media day too. But I haven't heard anyone mention Media Day this year. If training camp starts on Friday, then it would ordinarily be on Thursday. But since the player's CBA vote doesn't end until 4 pm EST on Thursday, I don't think it can be on Thursday. So will Friday be media day, or will it just be skipped this year? Skipping it seems like a bad idea, and a missed opportunity to get fans acquainted with the new players and get the PR buzz up to speed again. Anyone heard anything?
