"Due to the ever increasing problems with the economy, the CBA has decided to abbreviate the remainder of the regular season...This is the best course of action for the CBA to take at this time.  The economy has affected us all and we are now directly seeing the fallout from that.  We will be  holding an owners meeting during the finals as we look to restructure the CBA and come back next season stronger than ever."
