    NBA reopening gonna be a disaster?

    Denver just shut down their practice facility bc of two new covid cases on the team.

    Pelicans say three people tested positive but won't disclose who (for fear it's Zion?). They concocted this stupid play in format specifically bc of and for Zion. Wouldn't it be ironic if he is quarantined for all of it?

    This year's NBA champion will be the last team standing that has 5 available players by October

    Only real fear is some knucklehead like JR Smith breaking the bubble to party then coming back and infecting everyone.

    While I am one of those who believes we haven't taken this virus serious enough, I also believe that these sports teams should just accept the fact that it's unlikely to harm them at all.

    You are making millions. Man up

    But then again since they have so much money in the bank already is one of the likely reasons they are reluctant to even play

    Team that wins is the team that cheats and doesn’t report positive results. Can you you imagine a finals where Lebron and AD test positive but the results are withheld until after game 7? Ya, me too. They’ll get dlapped on the wrist, a fine and a good laugh as they’re hositing the banner

    Young people (athletes in particular) can test positive but not exhibit (nor feel?) any symptoms.

    Gotta remember, these guys spend mega deniro on wardrobes that would make Barry Manilow blush.

    They're gonna miss the cake.

    Of course it will be a disaster. There is no way every one of these guys stays in a bubble for months.

    I am clueless regarding pulling and posting vids here, but what I would like to see is the scene in
    "Along Came Polly" with Ben Stiller and Phil Hoffman (RIP) playing pick-up hoops. Social distancing my ass.

    Golf having a hard enough time, hoops going to be an absolute disaster.

    There is no other reason this is being done than in the name of the mighty dollar. Gimme a break if anyone says otherwise. Players, owners and marketers all stand to gain by doing this.

    The only guy that doesn't care about the money is LeBron busy chasing legacies since his real money comes from advertising deals.

    The other big name advertising players that take in more than NBA contracts could ever give them like Durant, curry and Kyrie have already spoken by sitting out. They don't need it.

    This is purely a money grab, I just hope to be on the right betting side of this crazy

    Seems to me the best solution would be to stop testing players! Most of them donít even know they sick until the test come back anyhow. So unless a guy feels sick leave him be! Lol

    Seriously though, could you imagine if they did this same thing for cold viruses (which also corona viruses) in the middle of the NBA season?

    Yeah find out which players tested positive and then put all players from all teams in the same room so all of them can catch it. And then start playing games. Survival of the fittest!

    Well the Spanish league just wrapped up. The German one ended the week prior. Both went off without a hitch! Without a hitch!!

    All down to the players. They'd do well to put ankle tags on them when they're off the court... leave the bubble, don't bother coming back.
