The Impact Of Covid 19 On The NBA Season
The NBA is in a time that it has never had to deal with before. The league has to try to manage how it will handle the rise of cancelation games and the undeniable fact that more players will be exposed to covid and that more players will test positive themselves as they travel and live their own personal lives. There have been some noticeable games these past few weeks that have been canceled vs not been canceled.
The Miami Heat had a game where they had to play and eventually half of their roster was soon not able to play for covid related issues. The teams that seem to get more positive press have had games canceled which help them in the long run not having to play short handed but again, the Miami Heat, who, even though they made the NBA finals last season and pushed the Lakers to 6 games who still seem to not get any credit or respect that they deserve from the media, still had to play the 76ers twice almost at full strength and the pistons when they were at less than full strength themselves.
The NBA is definitely approaching a time where it needs to make a decision for the rest of the season because one can't help but notice who's games get canceled vs others when it will have a big effect on these teams in the standings and playoffs. The NBA can either cancel the rest of the season or they can figure out how to make a new bubble as they did last season to finish the season. This will help with getting games canceled and help with players getting sick or affected by covid.
The NBA has already shortened the season this year so with less games being played, more games being canceled, and more players being affected, Adam Silver needs to make a decision that will help the players, teams and their seasons.
