NBA owners, players resume talks in hopes of ending the lockout
NEW YORK (AP) ' NBA owners and players have resumed talks aimed at ending the lockout, less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn't produce a new labor deal.
The sides are getting back to the table Wednesday with a small group meeting. Talks broke down last Thursday when players said owners insisted they agree to a 50-50 split of revenues as a condition to further discuss the salary cap system.
The first two weeks of the season already have been canceled, and there is little time left to save any basketball in November. Commissioner David Stern has said he feared even games through Christmas would be in jeopardy if there wasn't a deal last week.
