NBA BEGINS CANCELLING REGULAR SEASON GAMES

To no one's surprise commissioner David Stern announced Monday the NBA has scrapped the first two weeks of its season. That's about 100 games down the tubes.

Talks did actually resume on Sunday to try and find a last-ditch deal, but no common ground was found. So the lockout goes on, now over three months and counting. All in all I think people are disappointed but not surprised by this news. Both sides have dug in their heels and I expect it will be a long time before we come to a resolution.

People still don't miss the NBA yet because this is still technically the NBA pre-season period and people are too interested in all the other sports going on right now (the Detroit Lions are 5-0!!!!). But wait until December rolls around when baseball is over and when everyone's favorite football teams are out of the playoffs. THAT is when people will start to miss the NBA -- assuming they miss these greedy players at all.
