Wojnarowski: NBA To Cancel First Two Weeks of Pre-Season

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the NBA is expected to cancel the first two weeks of pre-season.  The announcement should come on Friday.

----------------------

After failing to make progress in collective bargaining talks with the Players Association, NBA commissioner David Stern will formally cancel the first two weeks of training camp and exhibition games in October after a call with league owners on Friday, NBA sources told Yahoo! Sports.

----------------------

This is, no doubt, but the first shoe to drop.  Frankly it's unsurprising.  Nobody was going to be in any rush to save games that don't count.  It is, however, the first tangible marker that things are getting serious. 

Mourn in whatever way seems best to you.
