NBA Lockout Update Is Bad News For Everyone As More Games Canceled

The NBA lockout has not been pretty, though things seemed like they might be taking a swing for the better following Thursday's negotiating session. All of the optimism was once again sucked out of the building on Friday, though, when Commissioner David Stern announced that all NBA games through November have been cancelled.

This is bad news for everyone, but it hits the Minnesota Timberwolves pretty hard. The Wolves are a young team with a new coaching staff so it'd be nice if they were able to get a bit of chemistry going before the games started to count. That won't happen now, however, as things will no doubt be hurried along ... if and when there's a 2011-12 season.

The NBA doesn't have any further negotiating talks scheduled so it's tough to guess what the next step might be. It can't get much worse than it did on Friday, though, so it might be time to step away and regroup for awhile.
