The NBA Is in Talks to Restart Season at Disney World Sports Complex
NBA fans will be excited to know that there's still chance for a 2019-2020 season.The league posted an official statement to Twitter today from NBA Chief Communications OfficerMike Bass."The NBA, in conjunction with the National Basketball Players Association, is engaged in exploratory conversations with The Walt Disney Company about restarting the 2019-20 NBA season in late July at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida as a single site for an NBA campus for games, practices and housing," the statement read.
In March, the league suspended gameplay indefinitely after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, causing multiple teams to enter self-quarantine. In April, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver admitted that the total of confirmed cases in the league exceeded ten.
"Our priority continues to be the health and safety of all involved," the statement continued."We are working with public health experts and government officials on a comprehensive set of guidelines to ensure that appropriate medical protocols and protections are in place."
PhotosHow the Coronavirus Is Impacting Hollywood and EntertainmentThe idea of officially cancelling the season has been met with mixed feedback.Some players, industry insiders and fans feel it is best to cancel the season, whereas some players are eager to get back on the court.
In a recent report byCNBC, some team executives and agents expressed interest in taking the entire season off in order to focus on setting better health precautions for the following year of play. And as much as the conversation is surrounding the safety of players, much of it comes down to the billions of dollars at stake.
But many players were upset with the report, especially league leader LeBron James"Saw some reports about execs and agents wanting to cancel season???" James said on Twitter."That's absolutely not true. Nobody I know saying anything like that. As soon as it's safe we would like to finish our season. I'm ready and our team is ready. Nobody should be canceling anything."

However, this announcement isn't the first step towards a return to basketball.Many NBA teams began reopening their own practice facilities earlier this month."Teams will be allowed to make facilities open to players on a voluntary basis for individual work, but larger group workouts will still be prohibited," ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted when the announcement was made."In NBA markets that aren't loosening restrictions, league plans to work w/ teams on other arrangements for players."
