NBA cancels first two weeks of regular season

(Reuters) - The National Basketball Association (NBA), locked in a labor dispute with its players, has canceled the first two weeks of its regular season, NBA commissioner David Stern said on Monday.

The cancellation came after league owners and players were unable to reach agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement in a last-ditch meeting in New York.

The season was scheduled to start on November 1.
