6 games lost - for now

NBA commissioner David Stern canceled the first two weeks of the 2011-12 regular season on Monday. That amounts to six games for the Cavaliers. Of course, many, many more could follow in this labor impasse.

The following are the first six regular-season games on their schedule:

Nov. 2 @ Boston
Nov. 4 vs. Toronto
Nov. 6 @ LA Clippers
Nov. 7 @ Denver
Nov. 9 @ Sacramento
Nov. 12 vs. Boston

I figured the BRI could be the major sticking point in these last-second negotiations. Well, I was wrong. It were things that should have been covered in past negotiations - length of contracts, size of mid-level exception, and so forth. Shouldn't these so-called minor things been hammered out months ago?

I read a quote today, I think it was in Ken Berger's story for CBS Sports. He quoted someone saying this was "pre-ordained." That's a very telling quote.
