    Pretty much a death sentence for the suspended season.

    A thought, one that is impractical, but I'm trying to entertain myself.

    One thing the league might have done as soon as the Coronavirus came up with the Jazz is have the players end all contact with each other, the staff, no practices, etc., and to self-isolate themselves at home. Not a terrible burden financially for most of them, considering the salaries even end of bench players often receive, and the league could have offered to keep paying the salaries of every league employee, refs, and so on, including the G League, who would all self-isolate. Do that while the crisis continues, test the players regularly, and perhaps have games without the crowds down the road, after a reasonable "virus free" amount of time. The problem with that is having everyone involved adhere to it, which would be damn near impossible. That possibility, as unlikely to work as it may have been anyway, is now in the toilet.

    Really angers me that so many throughout the nba seem to have been tested when they are asymptomatic

    meanwhile anectodally you hear of endless symptomatic people that can’t get tested for ****... including health care professionals.

    like really angers me.

    I’m glad they know for sure. Everyone should know. At this point we basically just need the ability to test everyone, every day, for the next few months. Which obviously sounds ridiculous and impossible but that’s the ideal end goal.

    but given that is an impossibility shouldn’t we test symptomatic people first?
