When Will Mavericks Receive Rings?
The delayed opening is a confirming signal that the NBA labor dispute is beyond serious. It’s already cost the league a chunk of the preseason and commissioner David Stern probably will announce another cancellation of exhibitions and a further delay before training camp can begin today or Tuesday.
The players don’t want to budge on some key issues. Neither do the owners. This is how free-enterprise works.
Within another 10 days or two weeks, an announcement about losing regular season games will come.
All the while, the Mavericks will miss out on their first chances to be announced as the reigning NBA champions.
