Sides Harden with Deadline Near

The only positive news out of the NBA labor talks is that it's not Monday yet.  The union is refusing to budge (at least publicly) from a 53-47 BRI split and owners refusing to budge (at least publicly) from their insistence that the players accept 50-50 and talk about the other issues still unresolved. So, on Monday, David Stern is expected to cancel the first two weeks of the season.

Even Chris Sheridan, ever the optimist, tweets Sunday that there's little news, "but none of it positive."

On Saturday, union leader Billy Hunter briefed players in Miami where many had gathered for the charity game between Team Wade and Team James. Afterwards, Carmelo Anthony was pessimistic, but firm. "Right now, it looks like they're going to cancel the first two weeks of the season," Anthony said. "Let's be realistic. I don't think nothing is going to happen between now and Monday."
