To the Brink? No Weekend Meetings

In a near simultaneous stream of tweets and stories that suggests a calculated leak, writers covering the CBA talks all report the union and owners won't meet before Monday. The league said it was willing to meet Sunday but wouldn't go beyond a 50-50 split In BRI. The union refused.

Monday, of course, is the deadline that David Stern has set for the cancellation of the first two weeks of regular season games. With that cancellation, prospects for a full 82-game season would be murky at best.

Schedulers, teams and venue operators would have a hard time stitching together enough back-to-backs and playoff delays to make up for the five or six games each team would lose.
