Report: NBA Could Have 78 Game Season

Publish date:

If NBA players and owners are able to reach a deal by the end of next week, a 78 game season can still be salvaged, according to a report in the New York Post. Sources told the newspaper that the league can still construct a 78 game schedule if they are able to begin the season December 1.

NBA commissioner David Stern said Friday that a full 82 game season could have been saved had a deal been struck that day.

"We had quite openly discussed with the players that if we could make the deal, we could get the season in," Stern said.
