Report: NBA cancels games through Dec. 15

Dei LynamCSNPhilly.com
It may be stating the obvious but late Tuesday afternoon the NBA informed its teams that they have officially canceled all games through December 15. Previously, Commissioner David Stern had canceled games through the month of November. The commissioner had also instructed that a months time is necessary upon reaching an agreement between the players and owners to get free agents signed, training camp in and a couple exhibition contests.

Expect the cancellation of games to continue through 2011.

On Monday the union elected to disclaim itself in the first step toward filing an antitrust lawsuit against the owners. That suit is expected to be filed tomorrow.

Today was supposed to be payday for the players.

Thompson eliminated in first round of All-Star 3-point contest

Thompson eliminated in first round of All-Star 3-point contest

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not repeat as the NBA All-Star Game's 3-point shootout champion. 

In need of 19 points, Thompson managed only 18 -- that allowed Kemba Walker to advance into the semifinals. 

Houston's Eric Gordon had the high score of the first round. He went on to win the championship -- besting Kyrie Irving.

Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league. 

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Draymond Green defends Kyrie Irving: Earth 'may be flat'

Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did

And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too. 

"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said

For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way. 

"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks. 

"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”

Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
