Scrap this season. Whatever happens is going to have an asterisk next to it. Scrap it and maybe LeBron will retire. Please retire.

It doesnt make sense playing in an empty arena the excitement will be gone. They should have cancelled the season.

Let's hope this plan actually works. There's no guarantees it will and being able to crown a champion will take a lot. How many guys could test positive before Silver might officially cancel the season? There's a lot of time before this restart scheduled date and a lot can happen before then, especially since the protests could cause more outbreaks. I also would wonder: What would Silver tell people that test positive right before they go to Disney? Would be they not be allowed to end up going? I understand why he's still trying to crown a champion: Obviously because the season was almost over and especially money, but he also knows that the virus will impact next season as well and they'll have to play through the virus. Hopefully they can pull this plan off and in the event they don't would Silver still start next season in December and not on time in October?

The NBA should "put" 2 more teams together that's rosters are filled with NBA players whose teams did not make the "playoffs." Chose a couple former coaches for this run & let em' ball. It'd only add to the excitement & drama of this proposal.

Right, the play will be what it is. Not as good...close to being as good... Cancel the season. Return fresh. ready November 1 2020/2021 I want to see a level playing field for all. It's great the top players are ready to go. But the bottom 8 players on roster may be rusty and won't be playoff quality NBA basketball
Stupid...these guys will need months just to get the rust off.... That'll be the excuse, for the players, playing worse than they usually do during the season. Not that that's very good either. No matter what kind of ego driven goofy season they put together.... Are they going to go right into next season...??? No preseason??? So if you got 3 months b4 october... Is it really that important for LeBron to possibly win his last title by default??? Cause next year....it won't happen.
