Report: NBA To Cancel Two More Weeks of Season

Frank Isola and Mitch Lawrence of the NYDN report that the first month of the season will be canceled on Tuesday. Already the first two weeks have been canceled and David Stern had said if no deal was reached next week that he felt the Christmas Day games would seriously be in jeopardy of being canceled. I think this is a good thing in this aspect: While it sucks that games are being missed, I think the more checks the players miss the closer they will come to folding. As I have said the whole time, the players will lose and they will fold at some point. It is just a matter of when. Last weeks talks really showed me that the owners are totally willing and able to play hardball and this move further indicates their willingness.
