NBA Restart: Some Players Have Concerns Over Restart Plans
The 2019-20 NBA season is pencilled in to restart on July 31st, with the remainder of the season set to take place at Disney World, Florida, a number of top players have held a conference call to highlight their concerns.
As many as 50 players spoke over the past day and have brought up a number of issues they perceive as problematic to the restart, though they haven’t made a formal petition to the NBPA on the matter.
Among the issues raised include family situations given the long stint in the ‘bubble’ in Orlando, implications surrounding the ongoing social justice and anti-racist marches that are taking place as well as general health concerns about getting back into action when the coronavirus pandemic is still very a cause of concern.
Anyone who leaves the Disney ground will not be able to return until they have served a ten-day quarantine spell. Some players with medical issues are also very worried about the implications of playing given their high-risk status.
Unsurprisingly the NBA and NBPA are working night and day to finalize details and terms ahead of the restart and many had hoped this bridge would have been crossed by this juncture.
Now may well be the ideal time to learn as much as you can about how to bet on the NBA, with the restart fast approaching and a flurry of games to consider backing. 22 teams will take part in the altered schedule and all matches will be completed in front of an empty arena, though the viewing audience is sure to be very large indeed, such is the love of the game worldwide.
