The leaders of the NBA and the players union met in New York on Tuesday, 89 days into the lockout and just over a month before the scheduled start of pro basketball's regular season. The league postponed the start of training camps and cancelled the first week of pre-season games last Friday.

Union President Derrick Fisher, Executive Director Billy Hunter and player union attorneys are met with NBA Commissioner David Stern, Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver and labor relations chairman Peter Holt. The regular season is scheduled to begin November 1st. Some analysts believe the entire season could be lost if the two sides don't agree on a new labor contract.
