The players union for the National Basketball Association says no to a new deal which could spell the end for any games this season.

The 2011-2012 season appears to be over before it begins which means the Thunder might not be playing again in Oklahoma City for some time.

NBA players rejected the latest offer from the league and began disbanding the union.

Commissioner David Stern is urging the union to take the deal while players take steps to file an anti-trust lawsuit against the NBA.

The Thunder was set to start games in Oklahoma City in December if the deal was finalized this week.

No NBA could spell a big loss for the downtown/Bricktown area which brings in more than a million dollars per home game.
