NBA players view Dec. 22 start as ‘inevitable,’ vote coming as soon as Thursday, per report. NBA players have shown little enthusiasm for the league’s plan to start the 2020-21 season on Dec. 22, only around two months after the NBA Finals in Orlando ended, however, due to the massive decrease in revenue due to COVID-19, and massive revenue loss if they were to start later, it seems like there is very little choice. If the NBA were to start in December, it would be a 72 game season.
This means that Knick players, along with the 7 other teams that didn’t participate in the bubble, will play their first game after 9 months. This also means teams that made deep playoff runs will have to start another season after only 2 months of lay-off.
What are your thoughts on the proposed season?
