Stoudemire says confidence is building

NEW YORK -- Amare Stoudemire emerged from Tuesday's labor talks around 4:45 p.m. with some positive news. While walking through the lobby of a New York City west side hotel to leave to catch a flight, he said, "Both sides are really confident about getting something done soon."

But he did caution that the owners and players, who are now in their third hour of negotiations, are "not sure if the season's going to start on time or not."

Stay tuned for further updates.
