It is no secret to anyone that most, if not all, of the major sports leagues from around the world have their mind set on finishing their season and crowning a new champion the right way. The NBA is one that since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis started and the games had to be suspended, publicly said that they intend to do this, and have been looking for the right plan to be able to go ahead and finish all the games that were remaining, and then go to the playoffs, even if that means finishing late in July or even August.
Recent reports in the media have suggested that the NBA officials have turned their attention to what has been done in China, a country which also has a very important basketball league and plays a similar format to the NBA, with a total of 20 teams, and that is resuming action after the whole country stopped all activity, due to the crisis as well.
What they’re doing in China right now, basically, is that they chose two cities, and that’s were every single team will play from now on, until the season is over. No fans in attendance still, of course, but thee point is to try to have every player and every team in a safe environment, kind of a “bubble”, if you want to see it like that, so that they can live there, train and play, for a few weeks, until the championship is defined.
Can the NBA really play in a bubble?
There are many factors to consider if the NBA wants to make this a reality. It’s just an idea so far, and of course, we still need to wait and see how the crisis behaves in the next few weeks and if it’s even possible to think of something like this.
Players, team owners and NBA officials all agree in the sense of carrying on with the season, when it’s safe, and not abandoning the 2019-2020 season, so that’s a start. However, it will not be easy to get everyone on board regarding the conditions and rules that will apply if this plan moves ahead.
On the other hand, it will be important to see what happens in the league starting May, because, even if players and teams have agreed to donate money to many different causes, one of the many ghosts that’s in the air right now is that teams could start reducing players’ salaries soon, and that can cause many different reactions in the league, that could complicate any further plans.
There are no leads so far or any official information that could confirm this plan is true, or which cities are being taken into consideration in any case. However, it is an idea that could save the season and could bring back the excitement and emotions to the millions of NBA fans from around the world. Here in the Price per Head industry we’ll be on top of the news and, as soon as anything is confirmed, we’ll be able to come back and deal the lines for the remaining of the NBA season, so come over now, join and let’s make the most out of the circumstances together.
