In November, only a few were included in the covid protocol, and now there are already hundreds of players and several coaches in quarantine. Almost everything with an omicron.
ESPN insider Brian Windhorst on the Hoop Collective podcast spoke about the attitude of representatives of the clubs to the reluctance of the league’s management to suspend the season due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
On the one hand, they cannot believe that the NBA does not pause in the current circumstances. On the other hand, they admit that if the season was not suspended in December, when there was a peak in the incidence among players, then there is no point in thinking about it in the future.
You just need to go through these circumstances. We pinch our nose and hope the COVID wave ends soon, ”Windhorst said.
Over the past two weeks, already nine games have been pushed back to a later date. But if the club has 8 people? Let them play. The NBA does not want to endure what can be saved, even if what happens on the floor will be a little reminiscent of basketball at its level.
And this was especially true for the Christmas games. Christmas matches are a tradition, and with the finals and the NBA All-Star Game and the March Madness in college basketball, this is the day that basketball is the main sport in America.
