NBA Governors Meet

NEW YORK () -- The National Basketball Association's labor situation is the major topic of interest as the league's board of governors gathers to meet.


Although owners were to decide on a raft of items Wednesday, commissioner David Stern's report on collective bargaining was the most urgent business facing the group. The NBA's labor deal with the players expired at the end of last season, no talks have been held since July 11 and the season starts Nov. 4. The league, which has never had a work stoppage, has tried to deny talk of a lockout, but the NBA and its players remain far apart on salary cap and free agency issues.
