Say goodbye to the NBA season.
No, the whole season hasn’t been lost to us, yet. But it’s looking like that’s going to happen. The NBA has only had two meetings all offseason to try to rectify their issues, but it’s all been for naught. Since they didn’t reach their deadline to end negotiations, the NBA has been forced to cancel 43 preseason games.
“We have regretfully reached the point on the calendar where we are not able to open training camps on time and need to cancel the first week of preseason games,” NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. “We will make further decisions as warranted.”
The season was supposed to start on November 1st and that looks like a long shot at this point. Better start thinking about taking your talents overseas, fellas.
