NBA Cancels the First Two Weeks of the 2011-12 Season
For awhile now, there was a growing sense from some observers of the negotiations that there was no way that this would get done without losing games, since the owners feel that the players won’t truly begin to fold until actual games (and thus player payments) were lost. I hope that that is not the case, and this is just a matter of the two sides legitimately being far apart on their positions and not a negotiating tactic. Either way, though, it really does not matter too much as at the end of the day it means the same thing – fewer Knick games for us to watch. And that’s a damn shame.
