Sides to Meet; Tuesday Drop Dead Date?
Two more labor meetings are left before the 2011-12 NBA regular season will become unrecognizable as we know it.
After taking yesterday off, the Players Association and commissioner David Stern’s posse meet today and tomorrow with the season on the brink. Cancellation of the rest of preseason and a chunk of the regular season could come tomorrow night.
And once that happens, Stern has repeatedly warned a deal will be harder to reach.
Last week, Stern said “enormous consequences” will occur if an agreement wasn’t reached by yesterday. But now tomorrow becomes D-Day, with Stern feeling if regular-season games are cancelled, it could be the beginning of the end of the 2011-12 season.
