    Pretty sure the games from this season can be watched via League Pass. I've watched several a second or third time that way. Don't know if games from previous seasons are available to watch. Never looked. Considering how much I've paid for LP and NBATV over the years, they should be.

    Barkley is sick. This is his phone call to Inside the NBA on TNT

    if the rocks slump was due to tiredness and not adjustments. a shortened season/break could see them come back with a second wind and shred through the playoffs.

    Just end the regular season and go straight into playoffs if able to play in mid April/June

    Messing with the draft and free agency and delaying the start of next season will just be a cluster ****

    You can't choke in the playoffs if there are no playoffs

    I know nobody is pumped about this but the NBA could experiment with players only, refs, and coaches and Mic up all areas around the arena. I would still watch because I don't like most of the commentators anyway. All the NBA has to do is train the head REF to announce the call like the NFL does.

    Use canned cheers. Use them in the arenas. Get plastic "blow up" people in the first few rows and put clothes on them, or better yet, use clips of fans from the relevant arena cheering like crazy. Do both. Add an extra ref to each game and make them fair, and make them run smoothly. An issue would be insuring that all the teams were actually healthy. That's a huge issue.

    There are things the league could do. It might amount to an abomination, but it would be better than losing the season entirely. Maybe.

    You know what's sad to me? I can see the NBA buying a bunch of used blow up dolls to fill up the stands...but I can't picture them adding an extra ref to make things officiated more fairly/smoothly.

    No games until mid-late June ?!!!

    There might be a vaccine/cure by then.

    All corona is is a strong flu.

    Fix it already.

    Fortunately, there's no known transmissions since 2004.

    The first vaccine trial for this bullcrap is being delivered tomorrow. So, we'll see....

    Government official: First dose to be delivered Monday in clinical trial for potential COVID-19 vaccine

    the current pandemic is being caused by what's simply termed as the type-2 variant strain of that original SARS virus
