The news that is coming out of New York after Tuesday's NBA lockout meeting isn't surprising, but it's still infuriating. As expected, the owners and NBPA could not come to a deal, and because of this, David Stern announced that the first two weeks of the season would likely be canceled on Monday.

In the wake of NBA lockout talks that broke off on Tuesday, commissioner David Stern told the media that he is cancelling the remainder of the preseason schedule and that if a deal isn't reached by Monday, he will cancel the first two weeks of the regular season.
