situation is definitely improving. all right, as we go into the next, oh, 12 hours or so, here are what we're expecting. chicago, already the delays have taken place there, but for dallas, memphis, minneapolis, those wind gusts could be up close to 60 miles per hour. now, we've already seen some reports that they've been as high as 65 miles an hour in sections of oklahoma, also into texas. cool weather is going to prevail here. nice, sunny sky. you'll need it because those wind chill factors are going to be exceptionally cold. this rainfall, though, fredricka, is kind of the key. here is the front going into sunday. for atlanta, the rainfall begins to pick up. lots of people on the roads trying to get different places for this extended thanksgiving holiday, but you're headed back to home. try to get home in time for work. for atlanta, for places like nashville, also into charlotte, it's going to be a wet forecast. more so into monday along that

1:35 pm
anything important to them that they downloaded here. >> everything is sorted and collected to be thrown out, recycled or put back in service. we brought you to this motor pool because it's really one of the few places you can go to get a sense of just how much we're talking about, how many vehicles, how many trucks, how much stuff. and that's just the tip of the iceberg. camp virginia has the capacity to house close to 7,000 troops and more than 5,000 vehicles. even though officials say they're below those levels, they admit it's been challenging keeping up with what's been coming out of iraq. >> it's very busy, and i will say we're making use of every available cot we have, all the space we have, but it's going really well. >> at ease, listen up. >> but there are signs of string. they had to greatly increase housing and office space, and the dining hall now remains open 24 hours a day just to keep everyone fed. the goal is to move the soldiers from a convoy to a flight back

it looks like we'll van nba season after all. david stern says a tentative agreement was reached this morning to end the lockout. the plan is to start the season on christmas day with a triple header, but players still have to ratify the deal. notice sports and entertainment attorney daniel meacham joins me live right now to talk about this proposed deal. the players still have to ratify it. would they back out at this juncture? >> i don't think so, but they can't ratify it until they reform the union. they recertify the union on
1:40 pm
december 14, so there are a lot of legal hoops that need to be overcome before there is a collective bargaining. >> so a lot? >> a lot. >> so nobody should celebrate december 25, possibly the start of the regular season. >> they say basketball players are the most pessimistic people, so maybe my opinion isn't the one to rely on, but there's two lawsuits. they placed one in minnesota, and they have to withdraw that. they filed a lawsuit in new york, they have to withdraw that lawsuit. i think one of the bargaining chips that allowed this to happen is that the players do it to gain $6 billion in damages in a lawsuit. but you've got to reform the union. the owners, 15 of 29, have to ratify the agreement. now, there is an economic committee within the owners that have to approve it and recommend it to the board. that has to be done. >> is it your contention that
1:41 pm
some of the players you represent, that some of the players are saying they had to give up the most in this in order to even reach this tentative deal, that they're losing millions. >> the collective bargaining agreement the players receive, they're guaranteed 57% of the revenues. that's $4 billion. now it's 50/50. so i don't know what the math is, but i think 7% of $4 billion is a significant number. the other thing is they did not mess so much where the cap or restrictive agencies, but what they did is they used the luxury tax as a restriction from a player like kevin durant who went from a small market in oklahoma to a large market in new york. i don't think what people understood, it was a three-pronged fight here. it was the owner of small markets versus the owners of large markets and then the players. >> so how does it either change the game, change the structure of the nba or change the contracts from this day forward?
1:42 pm
>> i don't think right now you're going to know until these things like luxury taxes start to really be applied and be in place. if they become very restricted, it's going to do a couple of things. it's going to have a restriction on the players' salaries, which is what they don't want to have, and it's going to have a restriction on the movement of the players' free agencies. i think it's kind of wait ask s -- wait and see, but the problem is you have to have players and owners voting on that agreement before you really know how it's going to play out. >> so the players are saying, wait, this is over a lot of money when a lot of the players and agents are making a lot of money, so a lot of fans are more disappointed that it disrupted the regular season and a lot of them feel these are spoiled kids fighting over their territory. do i have that right? >> the fans have the right because the fans make the game. but i think it's relative, because the players -- i heard michael jordan at his hall of
1:43 pm
fame induction say that though the front office put together a good team, the players won the championship. these players are the highlights. they're the entertainment. the owners take an economic risk in putting the team together. the players take a risk as well. and so one of the things of guaranteed contracts and economic risks, it's a real relative kind of situation. it's like saying secretariat was a good horse, so why did he get a chance to do all the things he did? it's relative. it's not a swayed back horse, it's relative. they played this game all their lives and they're entitled to be compensated for it. ive friends on both sides, owners and players, but i think i probably land with the players a little bit more. >> we'll see if we, indeed, are going to see that triple header on christmas day. daniel meacham, good to see you. >> good to see you. thank you. here's a recipe for disaster. what would be your reaction if you walked into your living room
