2019-2020 NBA Season Thread

Recommended Posts

Guys are going to need a mini camp to get back in shape or they're going to be a bunch of small injuries.  If they could get back by Memorial Day/June 1st, I think Silver would be all over that.  They should simply make it a 72-75ish season which gives guys enough games (7-10) to knock rust off (it'll have been 3 months since playing a meaningful game) and then have a truncated playoffs.  Maybe the first round is old school with a best out of 5.  Fuck the 3-4 days off for the Finals.  Every other day is the schedule.

I'm all for just restarting the season OR playoffs in July, having the Finals in August, and adjusting the future schedules to match. 

 

I'd much prefer for NBA to start on Christmas day with a great slate of opening games with NOTHING competing against them...and having the season go all the way until June, with the Playoffs and Finals going to August.  

 

It'll help baseball kill the summer doldrums, and going strait from Finals to NFL would be awesome.

Easter Sunday night...another 2 weeks into this shit...we're all about to kill anyone and everyone around us.  Give us a reprieve.

20 players. 3 refs.  Necessary support personnel.  All tested and ok.  No one else in the arena.

Midwest venue, away from C19.   Breen and Van Gundy. on the call.  No Jackson.

Play an All Star-like game.  48 minutes.  Or play any game.  Anything. 

America would kill for it, Silver.  Do it.

Bahamas - stage the players, coaches, staff, refs, and their families in accommodations on one of the islands until each one is cleared to hop over the NBA Island - a Covid-free sanctuary. Start playing games. 

Instead -We will get MJ documentary earlier. 

And starting this Friday we Players only - 16 NBA players will compete head to head in the NBA 2K Players Tournament. First Round starts this Friday on ESPN

They need to just cancel the season now rather than have some gimmicky end to crown a champion.  It’s over. 

Yeah, it's over. Is anybody really going to recognize the Lakers, Clippers, or whomever as 2020 Champions if they win some bastardized, abbreviated postseason?

Even if so, the logistics are untenable. They'd have to test all players, coaches, and critical support staff before every game. Say like 600 people between 16 teams. One person tests positive once and that's that.

Some sportsbook should start offering lines on this shit. Dont know how you protect against people throwing games, but there's probably a market for it. Lots of degens out there itching for some action.

Which is cool, as long as they start next season, and every season after, around Christmas and push the league year back from here on.

I'm sure there are places you can gamble on it. This is 2020.

Fuck that, just start the playoffs based on the standings the last week of the season as soon as this is done.

In December?

Damn may have just cost Lebron probably his last chance at a title IMO.  I think the Clippers will be better next year, and some young teams are coming up too.

I feel really bad for the Bucks.  Best chance for the title in decades...and Greek Freak enters free agency in 2021.  Time is tight.

Me: "Man, it doesn't get much more boring than watching two NBA players play each other in video game basketball."

ESPN: "Hold my beer."

 

That said, I'm just a hater because I don't have a single good idea to solve their live programming dilemma.
