1st Two Weeks of 2011-12 NBA Season Cancelled

Today NBA Commissioner David Stern cancelled the first two weeks of the 2011-12 NBA season as a direct result of the players and the owners failing to reach a new labor deal. As per Stern, the two sides are "very far apart" even after meeting for seven hours today. All games from November 1st to November 14th have been cancelled.
In my opinion, I still think that the entire season will be locked out but I do think there is a greater chance that there will be a 50 game season than there was before the summer. And the league really has terrible timing for a work stoppage with TV ratings up across the board and revenues uo as well. But we shall see what is next in this continuing process.
