Just when things were starting to look up — federal mediators! Marathon bargaining sessions! Small concessions from both sides! — it’s starting to look very, very grim for NBA fans once again. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, talks between the owners and the players have stopped, and the lockout has suffered what Wojnarowski calls a “huge setback”:

Talks on a 50-50 BRI split broke down, and labor talks have ended, source tells Y! No new meetings scheduled. Huge setback in this lockout.

We’ll keep you posted on any new updates as they come in, but things are not looking good at all right now.

    I love basketball and can’t wait for it to start. Sadly I seem to be the only one who cares anymore. Including the players and owners.

    The NBA should shut down for a year then come back with a product that actually follows the stated rules of basketball. No more: Steps, Charging, palming the ball, 3 second rule, etc.
