The restart of the NBA season has arrived, that following Major League Baseball’s “imperfect” return to the field. The NBA’s season reboot commences tonight, July 30, with two games scheduled for at the league’s Disney bubble at Walt Disney World.
Players haven’t had it easy, with being separated from their families, and everyone else in the world, hoping to stay COVID-19 free. Teams that move on to the NBA finals will spend up to 98 days at the Disney complex. As a reminder – this is not something anyone will be able to attend physically, Fans won’t be allowed anywhere, but Twitter and Microsoft are working to bring the action to the fans.
This NBA experiment won’t be simple as nobody really knows how empty seats and the lack of crowd noise will affect play on the court, but if you’re like us at Positively, we’re excited to see some hoops.
It’s been 141 days since the Dallas Mavericks scored a 113-97 victory over the Denver Nuggets on March 11 in the last game completed before the season was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Clippers will play the Lakers tonight after New Orleans takes on Utah. It’s a doubleheader night with games in separate venues so TNT can show the games back to back without waiting for the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to be sanitized, which is their main facility. #WholeNewGame
