Commissioner David Stern cancelled the first two weeks of the new NBA season on Monday night, after the league and the players failed to reach a deal to end a four-month-long lockout. At dispute is how to divide billions of dollars of league revenues, as well as league rules over how players are paid. The NBA will lose between $700-$800 million for each month of play lost.
Mitch Lawrence, NBA columnist for The New York Daily News, followed the negotiations until late last night. Superfan Darrell Bailey, aka "Clipper Darrell," reacts to the cancellation.
