    What's surprising for me personally is how little I would care. Priorities.

    Oh yeah, there is always a risk of spreading it to outside people but if Vegas is willing to do it and the players, nothing else is stopping the NBA from doing it. I'm sure Vegas is too, I imagine the shut down of sports has hit that particular city harder than most with its tourism and gambling just all gone like that.

    I think that's the only option at this point anyway, one court, best of 3, just run it.

    The issue though is it won't be safe. A lot of these coaches are really old dudes, 70+..so yeah.

    I think they could do a Lakers v Bucks best of 5 on one court. Hard to call it a championship but it would be an awesome distraction. The main problem is that it would involve a massive amount of testing and resources that we don't really have yet.

    They can use the new raiders stadium and set down 2 courts there. But by doing this sort of job
    1. Many of these construction workers can be infected
    2. Once you do that and to then maintain clean, provide nutrition and training to the players and doctors are at a huge shortage to corona Incase anyone needs injuries/ needs to check up on maintainence of injuries. Let’s say worst come scenario a player hurts themselves will there be a doctor to read an X-ray/ mri. You’d obviously have to wait until covid cases go down in less than 100s to less than 50 per city.

    i dont understant the sentiment of 'of course its over' or that there is not doubt that it should be over? why is this the prevailing idea. theyve played 60+ games. who cares how long it takes but have some sort of playoffs...dont care when it is or how long. have a few games to get everyone back in shape and have a shortened playoff if necessary but have one. i hate the idea of lost season, dont get it.

    But will there be a season next year? The virus will still be with us. Virus comes back with the cold.

    Vaccines, immunity, and therapies like tamiflu that mitigate sx’s will eventually be available for this virus.

    it’s just going to take more than 2-3 months.

    Call the rest of the regular season off. They have played enough games. Magic and Grizzlies have each got a decent lead for the last spots.

    The season has been over. The talk of continuing in has been wishful thinking on the part of NBA employees and fans.

    There isn't even any evidence it goes away with heat. Guayaquil Ecuador, which is hot and humid always, has run out of coffins

    The whole thing about instant testing, which I guess is the NBA new backup plan, isn't going to be workable either Even if you get your hands on these instant tests, what happens when you get a positive? That's right you shut everyone down for 2 weeks. That isn't going to work and that's also MLB/NHL/NFL aren't going to work either.
