No Movement On Day NBA Season Would Have Started
NEW YORK (AP) -- No KD vs. Kobe, no championship banner in Dallas.

The original start date to the NBA season has arrived with progress still stalled in the negotiations to end the lockout. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday that no further talks had been scheduled yet.

Players and owners made progress on a number of issues related to the salary cap system over two days last week. But the negotiations fell apart again on the third day, when the sides revisited the revenue sharing split.

Three games had been scheduled to tip off the season Tuesday. The Mavericks would have opened the defense of their first NBA title at home against the Bulls. Houston was at Utah, with Kevin Durant's Thunder at Kobe Bryant's Lakers.
