NBA Lockout To Claim 102 More Regular Season Games on Tuesday, Says Report

The NBA lockout will claim two more weeks of the regular season on Tuesday as commissioner David Stern will cancel an additional 102 games, report Frank Isola and Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News. If the report is accurate, Stern will have cancelled 202 games -- or 16 percent of the regular season, plus the entire preseason -- as a result of locking out players while the sides fight over a new collective bargaining agreement.

Talks broke off for the third time in three weeks on Thursday, as federal mediator George Cohen was unable to break a stalemate on the revenue split players would earn under a new deal. Players had earned 57 percent of league revenue over the last decade. The league refused to negotiate the rest of the collective bargaining agreement last Thursday unless the union conceded to a 50-50 split of revenue. The players have gone as low as 52.5 percent.
