08:11 AM ET 11.10 | David Stern said Wednesday he has stopped the clock ticking on the NBA season. [Stern's] 5 p.m. ultimatum last night passed with the NBA and Players Association again embroiled in a heated, last-ditch, 12-hour negotiation that lasted until 1 a.m. this morning. Though they could not get to a handshake agreement, the sides will return to the table today at noon in one last stab before Stern lays down the hammer. ... If a deal is reached [Thursday], there is possibility of a 76-game season. The Post has reported if a deal was hatched by last weekend, a 78-game season still was possible. Sources said the number of games would have to be an even number.

It would be a good start if they had a 76-game season.

And kept it there.

76 games... what a coincidence. That's the same % of people polled that said they could care less if the NBA ever played this year

Believe it when I see it.

You know something you greed driven ball players and owners, NO ONE cares if there's an NBA season. You can call off the season and no one will skip a beat.

They better get this thing worked out... I'm a middled aged black man. I'm so bored I'm watching hockey these days. With my new subwoofer the season better get started...

I'm one of those people who have reached the point of not caring if the NBA plays or not. I've been a fan since the late 1970s, but the parties in this leave me cold - the players far more so than the owners. The players sound like spoiled brats with an unbelievable entitlement mentality. I'm at a point where I wouldn't mind a bit if the NBA simply closed.
