It was bad enough the lockout postponed training camps for the upcoming season but now it seems a week of preseason games have been canceled as well.
NEW YORK, September 23, 2011–The NBA announced today that player training camps for the 2011-12 season have been postponed indefinitely because a new collective bargaining agreement has not been reached with the National Basketball Players Association. Training camps were scheduled to open on October 3.
In addition, the league canceled all preseason games scheduled from October 9 through October 15.
“We have regretfully reached the point on the calendar where we are not able to open training camps on time and need to cancel the first week of preseason games,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver. “We will make further decisions as warranted.”
This means the following San Antonio Spurs preseason games have been canceled:
- October 9: Spurs vs. Hornets in San Antonio at 7:30PM
- October 11: Spurs at Kings in Sacramento at 7:00PM
- October 15: Spurs vs. Kings in San Antonio at 7:30PM
What do you have to say Spurs fans? Do you see this season being saved or are you thinking the season will be lost?
