Representatives for the NBA owners and Players Association met at the Omni Berkshire Place in New York City on Monday to re-open negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement one month after the league locked out its players on July 1.
CBSSports.com's Ken Berger was live on the scene to provide instant quotes and reaction.
The following is a selection of Berger's tweets from the immediate aftermath on Monday afternoon featuring quotes from NBPA president Derek Fisher and NBA commissioner David Stern.
The key takeaway points: no progress was made on Monday, additional meetings will be scheduled to continue negotiations and Stern apparently accused the NBPA of not negotiating in good faith.
Certainly that is the strongest language that Stern or a league official has directed towards the players to date during this negotiating process.
