THE BRONX - Representatives from the NBA and the Players' Association are heading back to the bargaining table yet again.

Talks are resuming less than a week after a federal mediator failed to come up with a deal that would end the lockout.

Players claim that league owners insisted they agree to a 50/50 split of revenues before they would discuss a new salary cap system.

The league has already canceled the first two weeks of the season and more games could be on the chopping block.
