    We need to take the coronavirus seriously.

    1. It’s way more contagious then anything out there

    2. if your a healthy person you’ll probably be fine but it can still kill [Some conflicting reports from China and Italy]

    3. it still sucks getting it and can permanently damage your lungs

    4. it kills older people and people with existing conditions. 30-50 percent of people have existing medical conditions and this virus targets the weak and vulnerable and while you might think it’s just a bug we can end up killing thousands of people by infecting vulnerable people.

    Exactly, even if you don't die, and you probably won't

    DON'T BE A SPREADER

    DON'T BE A SPREADER

    I am going to leave work now and work from home - I hate it but it seems like the responsible thing to do.

    Man! And we were going to win it all this year. My body was ready for the release.

    What if the season resume in the summer and you get the finals in October? or should they just wait for next season all together?

    i mean nothing is resolved as of this moment so there's no reason for them to do so just yet.

    They should resume the season in 3 weeks with empty arenas.

    The hit on the economy is more dangerous then the virus itself

    Yeah I don't think there is anything short of a complete cancellation of the season that will motivate them to start refunding that much money. They make a ton of money on futures.

    This is crazy. I was going to go to a game next week. I suppose at least it saves me the suffering of seeing Isaiah Hartenstein wasting away on the bench.

    I am fine with this -- too many games are played anyways. A 62 game season with 6 teams making the playoffs from each conference is the way to go from a quality standpoint.

    Who are you most worried about coming back after a 30 to 60 day hiatus out of shape?

    PJ? Harden? Gordon?
