Hope of Resuming the NBA Season is Fading

“It is clear that the NBA is angling to set up a deal that enables them to shut the season down,” ESPN insider Brian Windhorst said on “SportsCenter.”

“They don’t have to do that yet. The way they’re negotiating, they’re leaving an option either way. But they’re not having talks about how to restart the league. They’re having financial talks [regarding player salaries] about what would happen if the season shuts down. I think there’s a significant amount of pessimism.”

There was talk of restarting the season in Las Vegas and using UNLV’s campus as a way to create what would amount to a bubble of people who have tested negative for the virus.

But there are many complications involved with the bubble plan. Everyone, from players to coaches to trainers, camera operators and equipment managers, would need to be tested. Would players be able to bring their families? Would the bubble be secure?

Professional sports leagues all over the world have suspended operations during the outbreak of the virus. The NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB have not decided whether to cancel their respective seasons.
