Report: NBA targeting July 31 to resume games
Only one key question about the NBA’s resumption – Where? (Disney World) – had a fairly clear answer.
Those all remain up in the air.
But we can now pinpoint: When?
Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Sources: The NBA discussed four competition scenarios for restart with Board of Governors today:— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) May 29, 2020
- 16 teams: Directly to playoffs
- 20: Group/stage play
- 22: Games to determine seeding, play-in tournament for final seed(s)
- 30: 72-game regular season, with play-in tourney
July 31 is a Friday. So, that could begin a fun weekend of basketball.
But remember: Coronavirus can upend the best-laid plans. So, while feels like the resolution we’ve all been craving, it’s only a goal.
Still, it’s nice to have a date to look forward to.
