The NBA, as expected, has canceled more games, at least according to a report from the New York Daily News. (via ESPN)
This would be the third time commissioner David Stern has postponed games as the league’s lockout of the players continues. The NBA had previously canceled the preseason and the first two weeks of its regular season which was set to begin on Nov. 1.
According to the Daily News’ source, this latest cancellation would total at least 102 games and run through Nov. 28.
The source told the Daily News that the NBA will announce the latest cancellation of games on Tuesday.
At present, the league’s annual slate of Christmas Day games remain a possibility, however no new talks between the owners and players union are scheduled.
After three days and 30 hours of meetings with a federal mediator, negotiations fell apart last week when union officials said they were told they must commit to a 50-50 split of revenues before owners would agree to discuss the salary cap system.
And as usual, the only good part about the NBA lockout is NBA scribes hitting tape-measure home runs.
The unrivaled Dave D’Alessandro shared his thoughts about the lockout in classic Dave D. fashion, and Chris Sheridan somehow found sources who would tell him just about every system discussion the two sides have had.
