Full Season at Risk This Week

Unless NBA players and owners can make a deal between now and Wednesday, an 82-game season is unlikely ...and few think that issues that have been unresolved for two years are going to be agreed on in two days.  Monday's talks will be conducted by the small groups, then Tuesday's will expand to larger groups.

Writes Ken Berger: "The owners and players have wasted so much time entrenched in their positions and staring at each other across various conference tables -- two years of stubbornness, two years of gridlock -- that there's barely time to get a deal that would save the season. There isn't nearly enough time to get that deal right, to make the kind of meaningful changes that would achieve the goals that both sides should share".
