What the f*** is this year
I mean makes sense. This thing is spreading so fast and with no cure, there's nothing protecting people. Health is more important than entertainment.
That escalated quickly
2020 is turning out to be the worst f***ing year ever.
NBA has set the precident. I expect the other leagues to follow. Heck, play the NCAA Tournament in July or something. It doesn't need to be played now. Opening Day can start later too. Most years there are always Opening Day's that are postponed because of rain. They might think about having a truncated season.
NHL will likely follow suit
worth noting that the raps did a charity event the day after they played utah. yikes
On a positive note, Raps still the Champs!
Does nomenclature matter here? Like suspensions can end? Or is this thing canceled and that's that and we'll see you next season?
Not surprised at all.
It is likely a play-it-by-ear situation.
The season is only suspended.
If things get better in a month or two...
The NBA could play an abbreviated season...
Or start the playoffs immediately...
Or it could just cancel the season because there is not enough time.
It really depends.
Nobody knows at the moment.
Good move in my opinion.
Keep everyone safe.
I knew once the game tonight was postponed a player had it. Goberts a jackass though for joking about it earlier.
Somebody on twitter said Kobe would play thru an apocalypse
Pelicans/Kings finally postponed
I just realized this maybe Vince Carter's last game in the NBA tonight.
Not the farewell we were hoping for from Vinsanity
8D chess move by Morey
Made sure nobody was going to win the title this year
On a positive note, my Spurs streak of not missing the playoffs continues
This is the most excited I've been about the playoffs in 10 years. I hope we still have them.
So much has happened today alone!
- Trump bans travel from EU into the US
- Harvey Weinstein finally got what he deserved
- Tom Hanks and his wife diagnosed with Coronavirus
- Rudy Gobert diagnosed with Coronavirus
- NBA season suspended indefinitely
It shouldn't be just those teams. But also the teams they played and so forth.
That's a 17.5-18 hour trip. Ouch.
