NBA Announces Pre-season Schedule

The NBA released its full pre-season schedule this afternoon. Of course, this assumes there is a preseason. See all 114 games at NBA.com: “The NBA today released its 2011 preseason schedule, in the event that the NBA is able to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with the NBPA in a timely fashion. The 114-game schedule tips off Sunday, Oct. 9 with five games and continues until Friday, Oct. 28, when three games wrap up the preseason. Kia Motors NBA Tip-Off ’11 is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1.”

    So, how is League Pass gonna work this year? Are they still gonna charge us the full amount? Or will it depend on when the season starts?

    Hahahaha. Oh, that’s too funny. Preseason. We’ll be lucky if we get half a season.

    The NBA has to bring out schedules for pre-season, regular season and so forth up until such times the season is cancelled. It is a good thing though…maybe the league are just going through the motions, maybe it’s genuine… but it may lead to further discussions and hopefully some gained ground….
    fingers crossed….

    Interesting. This is a clever little step by Darth Stern’s empire.
    If what we read is true, both factions are at the point that they can’t even agree on when to next meet.
    Rigo-Matic’s reaction is gonna be typical for a lot of paying fans of the League, and the more they grumble, the more both sides (ok ,the NBPA) are gonna be influenced to bend over backwards and take whatever they are offered by the owners.
    Or it’s just the leaugue office sticking to protocol.

    ^Aside from the hardcore bball heads, we won’t be hearing much grumbling. The NFL season overlaps with the beginning of the NBA season, and the NHL season runs in parallel with the NBA. Fans will get their sport fix, whether through NFL, College bball or NHL. If more fans grumbled (like during the NFL lockout), the owners might be more willing to bargain in good faith. There will always be demand for a pro bball league in this country; the demand just isn’t that high though.

    It’s not a ploy by Stern, the L is following protocol and if it did NOT put out the schedule the NBPA would jump on that and say that in a hurry saying something to the effect of (we are trying to negotiate and by not putting out the schedule they are essentially saying we are not budging and there will not be a season). Tell me I’m lying….The owners are greedy and so are the players but we fans are dumb…for paying the high prices for SPORTS when we won’t even give to a charity. SMH

    FYI, FIBA’s Eurobasket tourney will be broadcast by ESPN and it starts later this month. I know it’s not the NBA but should be interesting.
