Default A 78-game NBA regular seasons schedule still may be possible

Check this out. It would be a pretty crowded game schedule, but one report says that it's very possible the NBA still manages to have a 78-game regular season in 2011-12:

One month off the regular season and they still might play 78 games? These players are going to be tired by the postseason. Hope it isn't true.

LeBron James still may be clutch in the fourth quarter.

I agree. That's going to be too much for the players.

They should've signed that deal this Friday.

I think that we're due for cancellations.

50-60 game season is the best we can get.
I just hope there will be a season.

What is the revenue for the all star game vs the games missed from allstar weekend. I would have thought no way do the league cancel it, it would be a big money boost for all parties? They would just hold it at a late date?
