    Sorry if this has been posted, didn't see it if so. So far it looks like the NBA hasn't voted to hold games in regular stadiums again or in the bubble. What do you guys think?

    I'm hoping for reduced capacity real games in real stadiums kind of a deal, but we're deep in the pandemic as well. So, I don't know.

    I bet ticket prices are going to be nuts if there's even a limited number of fans next season (This upcoming season I should say).

    The Golden State Warriors have presented an ambitious plan to state and local officials to reopen Chase Center in San Francisco at 50% capacity for the upcoming NBA season, which owner Joe Lacob believes can be the model for all sports franchises and entertainment venues to safely bring back fans amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Lacob said the Warriors are prepared to spend upward of $30 million to test every fan, Warriors employee and player with the most accurate form of COVID-19 testing for each home game or day they come to Chase Center.

    No schedule has yet been released, but when the league does tip off, the hope is to have spectators inside the 30 NBA arenas.

    A source familiar with the NBA planning told NBC News the goal is to have fans at the games in adherence with all local government guidance, following protocols that could include masks, social distancing and testing.


    Despite the second-wave spikes of COVID-19 across the nation, the NBA is still planning to host fans in various arenas when the league opens its season Dec. 22.

    A four-page memo was distributed Wednesday to team presidents, GMs and arena directors on safety guidelines for admitting fans — providing those guidelines meet state regulations.

    In the case of the Knicks and Nets, it does not meet regulations. Gov. Andrew Cuomo still has in place an edict stating “no live audience, fans, or spectators are allowed to attend or permitted to enter any professional sports venue, even if an outdoor venue.”

    According to sources, the NBA memo emphasized safety to “provide a consistent standard for welcoming fans into arenas in a safe manner that reduces the risk of spread of COVID-19, is consistent with public health goals, and promotes fan confidence in attending NBA games.”

    Don't see fans in the stand s happening unless there is mandatory testing for fans in the lower level. I don't think there will be any fans in Toyota Center until February 2021 TBH. The vaccine should be reaching regular folks by then.

    Limited capacity probably until playoffs, then full capacity hopefully.

    Tilman is hemorrhaging money right now. He is going to try to have as many suckers in the stands as he can.

    Forget the pandemic. No fans should go to the games next year strictly because of Tilman's incompetence.

    Tilman will be lucky to get crowds as big as the Kevin Martin era even after a vaccine.

    Have the same social distancing rule apply to the seating arrangement. Plus have you been to the Toyota center even at full capacity? You can barely hear anyone so having fans or no fans is not exactly a deal breaker!
