If you’re one of those non-NHL, non-NFL, non-baseball fans still in denial about the NBA lockout, here’s visual proof, courtesy of celtics.com.
Yesterday, this scheduled opened Nov. 2, with a home game against the Cavaliers. Today, the six games prior to Nov. 16 are magically gone, vanished into the ether of millionaires vs. billionaires.

Stern also suggested that the cancellations imposed on the 102nd day
of the NBA lockout — just the second work stoppage in league history to

82-game season has also been lost after fruitless talks found NBA owners
and players unable to agree on key items such as luxury-tax specifics,
contract lengths and annual raises.
