NBA season in jeopardy says commissioner

5:53 pm on 14 October 2011

The National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern has the entire season could be in jeopardy if significant progress toward a collective agreement is not made early next week.

The NBA cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season with owners and players having been unable to resolve a bitter labour dispute.

The owners and players association are scheduled to meet with a mediator next week.
