NBA Lockout 2011: League Will Reportedly Cancel At Least Two More Weeks

If the NBA plans on playing any basketball in the 2011 season, it’s unlikely to happen before December.

That’s because a report from the NY Daily News today brings word that league officials on Tuesday (Oct. 25, 2011) will announce the cancellation of an additional two weeks of play.

The NBA will be cancelling at least two more weeks of its season, according to a person familiar with the league’s plans … With talks broken off between the owners and players, and the two sides far apart on major "system" issues, the cancellations are expected to total at least 102 more games, through Nov. 28.

No further talks have been scheduled at this time, despite the public outcry from unhappy NBA fans left stranded at courtside.

Today’s news comes on the heels of last week’s see-saw of negotiating. What started as "minor progress" quickly deteriorated into a "major setback."

Brian Ward recently declared the NBA season was "slipping away." Based on this most recent update, it’s hard not to agree.

Stay tuned.
