No Deal: NBA Season in Jeopardy

Published: October 20, 2011

The NBA and players have broken off negotiations without a solution or plans to talk again. You can panic now.

NBA owners and players ended negotiations after about five hours Thursday, and no further discussions were scheduled.

“Ultimately we were unable to bridge the gap that separates the two parties,” NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver said. “We understand the ramifications of where we are. We’re saddened on behalf of the game.”

The two sides remained divided over two main issues — the division of revenues and the structure of the salary cap system.

It’s OK to cry if you’re feeling sad. I am.
