An October 21st Oklahoma City Thunder pre-season game planned at
Tulsa's BOK Center has become a victim of the failure of the NBA contract negotiations.
The BOK management announced today the cancellation of the ghame because the NBA has announced the cancellation of its pre-season schedule.
Commissioner David Stern made the announcement on Tuesday, saying a breakdown of talks between players and owners led to the calling off of the preseason games. Stern explained that if there is no labor agreement by Monday, it will also lead to the cancellation of the first two weeks of the regular season.
