NBA Lockout Game Featuring Kobe Bryant and Blake Griffin In Puerto Rico Postponed

NBA fans just cannot win anymore. First came the news that two more weeks of the regular season had been cancelled and now comes news that a game scheduled for Sunday in Puerto Rico has been cancelled. Superstars such as Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin and others were all expected to play.

The news came courtesy of a tweet from Ira Winderman, a Miami Heat writer for the Sun-Sentinal:

Source confirms to Sun Sentinel that Puerto Rico exhibition Sunday "is not happening." Was to feature Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh.

Tim Reynolds also tweeted this update:

Online tickets for Sunday in Puerto Rico still on sale. Local reports in PR say players pulled out. Not true -- full deal didn't get done.

There were some reports of the game simply being postponed instead of completely cancelled -- hey, it's not like these NBA players have much going on these days -- and that will definitely be something to keep an eye on.
