Report: NBA To Cancel Two More Weeks Tuesday
The NBA will announce the cancellation of two more weeks of games Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News. David Stern has already canceled the preseason and the first two weeks of the season.
The report says this cancellation will wipe out 102 games and carry through Nov. 28.
If a deal is reached soon, Christmas Day games could still be preserved, but as it stands right now, pretty much all of November is gone. Not everyone’s favorite month of the NBA, but losing a month of basketball is a pretty large dent in the season. Each team will stand to miss about 15 games.
The NBA has reportedly established extra contingency schedules that would allow for a complete 82-game season, but that’s only rumor at this point. At it stands, the league will have lost almost 20 percent of the season.
