At first, Adam Silver said that the NBA season will start the earliest at the beginning of January so that they can try to wait for fans, however, it seems like things have changed.
According to Shams, the NBA is planning on having a 72 game season starting on December 22nd. It seems like there will still be a play-in series for the 8th seed like last season, and the NBA wants the games to be played in arenas, not in a bubble.
This gives players that were in the bubble around 2 months off, usually the length of the offseason, however, players who have not played in the bubble are going to have to wait a total of 10 months to play another NBA game.
The NBA draft is set for November 18th with NBA free agency usually a week after.
We also have to give major credit to Adam Silver who has dealt with COVID-19 particularly well.
What are your thoughts on this proposed idea?
