NBA hoping to restart season July 31, according to report

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (FILE -JANUARY 12, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. NBA COMMISSIONER ADAM SILVER SPEAKING AT PRESS CONFERENCE CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES (FILE - FEBRUARY 15, 2020) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 2. TEAM CAPTAIN LEBRON JAMES TAKING SHOT DURING PRACTICE SESSION FOR 2020 NBA ALL-STAR GAME 3. TEAM LEBRON PLAYER LUKA DONCIC TAKING SHOT 4.

TEAM GIANNIS PLAYER SIAKAM TALKING TO YOUNG FANS STORY: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has informed the league's Board of Governors that he hopes to restart the season on July 31, the Athletic reported on Friday (May 29). The NBA was the first North American sports league to suspend its season due to the COVID-19 pandemic after one of its players tested positive for the new coronavirus in mid-March. When asked by Reuters to comment on the Athletic report, an NBA spokesman said the league had "nothing to confirm at this point." The Athletic said the NBA discussed four competition scenarios, ranging from all 30 teams completing a reduced 72-game regular season to having the top 16 teams go directly to the playoffs. It is unclear where the games would be played or whether spectators would be allowed to attend. Last week the NBA said it was in talks with The Walt Disney Company about restarting its suspended season at Disney World in Florida in late July. The potential plan would see the league hold games at a single site, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, a sprawling athletic complex inside the Orlando resort that has three arenas, hotels and would allow the league to limit outside exposure.

* Clip shows Jordan refused Isiah Thomas as teammate * Former Bulls star said he played no part in team selectionMichael Jordan’s claim that he had no part in his rival Isiah Thomas being left off the USA’s Olympic ‘Dream Team’ has been contradicted by a new audio recording.In the recent ESPN documentary on Jordan’s career, The Last Dance, the six-time NBA champion denied he had lobbied for Thomas to be omitted from the Dream Team, which went on to win gold at the 1992 Olympics.But on his podcast, The Dream Team Tapes, writer Jack McCallum played an interview from 2011 which contradicted Jordan’s claim.“[Selection committee member] Rod Thorn called me. I said, ‘Rod, I won’t play if Isiah Thomas is on the team,’” says in the 2011 interview. “He assured me. He said, ‘You know what? [USA coach] Chuck Daly doesn’t want Isiah. So, Isiah is not going to be part of the team.’”Jordan and Thomas shared an intense rivalry during their careers. In The Last Dance Jordan admitted he still had “hate” for Thomas, stemming from an incident when the Detroit Pistons refused to shake hands with the Bulls after Chicago’s victory in the 1991 Eastern Conference finals.However, in The Last Dance, Jordan denied he had asked Thomas to be left off the team.“I respect Isiah Thomas’ talent. To me, the best point guard of all time is Magic Johnson and right behind him is Isiah Thomas,” said Jordan in The Last Dance. “No matter how much I hate him, I respect his game. Now, it was insinuated that I was asking [for Thomas to be left off the team] but I never threw his name in there.”McCallum wrote a book, The Dream Team, on the 1992 Olympics in which he says Jordan’s opposition to Thomas was crucial to the guard being omitted. “Please, in the year of our Lord 1991, there was no one who was going to pick Isiah Thomas over Michael Jordan. It’s that simple,” McCallum said on his podcast.While The Last Dance has been wildly popular, it has also been met with some criticism. Many critics have noted than Jordan’s production company was involved in making the show, and many of the Hall of Famer’s faults were glossed over as a result.Jordan’s former Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen is said to be “livid” with the way he is portrayed in the documentary, while another teammate, Horace Grant, was even more blunt.“When that so-called documentary is about one person, basically, and he has the last word on what’s going to be put out there ... it’s not a documentary,” Grant said. “It’s his narrative of what happens in the last, quote-unquote dance. That’s not a documentary because a whole bunch of things was cut out, edited out. So that’s why I call it a so-called documentary.”

One of the biggest questions the league will have to answer is where the teams will actually play. It turns out the answer may involve the Magic Kingdom. Yes, the NBA has set its sights on Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, something which probably raises quite a few questions among sports fans. What, the Walt Disney World? The one with Mickey Mouse and Space Mountain?The one and the same. On ESPN’s First Take, Los Angeles Lakers guard Danny Green confirmed reports that the league was seriously looking into playing games at Disney World. “It looks like we have multiple options for locations, but I think leaning toward Orlando and Disney to where it’s the safest,” Green said. Soon afterwards, the NBA released an announcement through spokesperson Mike Bass: “The NBA, in conjunction with the National Basketball Players Association, is engaged in exploratory conversations with The Walt Disney Company about restarting the 2019-20 NBA season in late July at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida as a single site for an NBA campus for games, practices and housing.” Does the plan make any sense?Oddly, yes. If the NBA were to restart the season, they would want to limit the number of people involved. The ideal spot would be a controlled, centralized environment in order to lower the risk of outside infection. As the NBA’s announcement notes, Disney World would provide its own housing accommodation for players and staff in the form of hotels, as well as basketball courts that could handle both practices and official games.It’s hard to imagine a place more controlled than Disney World, especially since it’s owned by a private entity. It also doesn’t hurt that the teams would be situated in Florida, which seems to be determined to reopen at a quicker pace than most other states in the US. (Whether or not this is especially wise is another question altogether.) How did the idea first come about?It was first raised a few weeks ago by Yahoo Sports writer Keith Smith, who wrote an extended piece (which bordered on an advertisement, at times) about how Disney World would be the perfect place for the NBA season to resume. It seemed, on paper, to be a ludicrous idea – and some noted Smith is a former Walt Disney World employee. But unconventional problems call for unconventional solutions, and Smith’s idea promptly gained traction within the league itself. How exactly would this work?Let’s make this clear: players won’t be shooting hoops among the rollercoasters. In an interview with SB Nation, Smith made a strong case that it wouldn’t take much to convert pre-existing spaces into basketball courts. “[The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex] has three primary indoor facilities that would be the hub of this,” Smith said. “I assume two would be set up for games. The third is a giant, customization space. I think they lay out courts in there for practices and possibly shootarounds … if necessary, Disney could convert some of their own convention space into practice areas.” Would playing at Disney World cheapen the 2019-20 season?For some, sure. For starters, it isn’t yet known whether the league could make up all of the regular season games that have yet to be played. Even if all goes to plan, we could end up with a shortened season. In fact, the league could decide it would make more sense to skip right to the postseason.Also, having all the games take place in one location would render home-court advantage essentially meaningless. Even in the best-case scenario, a NBA champion crowned at Disney World would probably “feel” different for many fans. One doubts that the NBA itself is too concerned that people won’t take the remainder of this season seriously – it’s not like the league has had any issues associating its brand with animated characters in the past. What would be the biggest drawbacks?They would be the same drawbacks as trying to continue the NBA season anywhere. Any plan will require frequent testing for Covid-19, not just of the players but of the other NBA and Disney World employees who would be in regular contact with them. Obviously, anyone testing positive would have to be immediately quarantined and, should the number of positive tests get out of hand, the league would probably be forced to shut down for a second time. If that happens, it could very well be the end of the season.Right now the league is having discussions with coronavirus testing providers. This leads us to another problem: NBA commissioner Adam Silver has made it clear that the season won’t resume until there are enough tests for the rest of the country. Will we be there by July? That’s impossible to say right now.Then, of course, there’s the worst-case scenario: let’s assume the season starts up again and, as a direct result, somebody gets infected and suffers life-altering health effects or dies. What if there are multiple coronavirus-related deaths because of the resumption? It’s something that will weigh on the minds of those deciding whether to play in the middle of a pandemic. Is the NBA so eager to crown a champion for the that it is willing to risk a tragedy at the so-called Happiest Place on Earth? The answer is starting to look more and more like “yes”.

"Our priority continues to be the health and safety of all involved, and we are working with public health experts and government officials on a comprehensive set of guidelines to ensure that appropriate medical protocols and protections are in place," NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement outlining the plan. In mid-March, with five weeks remaining in its 82-game schedule, the NBA became the first major North American professional sports league to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic after a player tested positive for the new coronavirus. Since then a number of other NBA players in the 30-team league have tested positive, including former league Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets. The NBA playoffs were originally scheduled to begin on April 18 and conclude in June.
