NBA Lockout: New News Is Bad News For Basketball Fans

The NBA lockout was expected to be coming to a close when the wtwo sides met on Friday morning. By Friday evening, however, there was a much more demure outlook as NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled another two weeks of the NBA season.

The cancellations don’t exactly come as a surprise considering there were reports that it could happen as soon as Monday, but the fact of the matter is that a deal should have been done by now … at least in the eyes of many following the merry-go-round that has been the lockout negotiations to this point in the process.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are perhaps one of the teams most negatively affected by this mess. With a young roster featuring multiple rookies that could compete for starting spots, it doesn’t help that they won’t be able to build chemistry with the rest of the team.

Hopefully this charade ends soon, but with all of November canceled, that doesn’t seem likely.
