At the end of the day, it was a perfect storm that caused this. Under prepared institutions, multiple ports of entry for the virus, lack of political will to completely shut down the country like China did, lengthy incubation period, lack of information about the virus, asymptomatic transmission, and yes some people not caring about getting the virus (i.e. “if I get corona I get corona” pos). Social distancing in March could have flattened the curve sooner, but it was only one aspect of multiple factors that caused this.

Hopefully we as a society can learn from this and prevent it from happening again. That is what the experiment of representative government through democratic elections is supposed to produce anyway. Accountability. I am hopeful we have all learned from this. Especially Iggie, who should never start the season again.

Don't really buy that these guys care much about safety aspect of the bubble, tbh. Some guys might be scared of muscle/tendon injuries, but I doubt covid is their top concern

Yeah, might be his last chance at another ring. The #TeamPetty in me wants the season cancelled, while the NBA fan in me wants a chance to see basketball. Torn!! :lol:

got to the border of Chaz. its looks kinda like how i’d mentally picture RGM without mods, just a wasteland ruled by a nefarious warlord (iggie) hunting for donations (and1s) from visitors and common folk.

Should have hit me up breh. Would have given you the tour. Not of Chaz, that place is :o ... but there’s plenty of other things to see in Seattle. Such as the “you are now leaving Seattle sign” and overpriced beer.

This makes perfect sense. NBA players are a tight knit circle. Undoubtedly I’m sure players are calling up those who test positive and asking how it is. When pretty much every player but Gobert (who had mild symptoms) has been pretty much Asymptomatic it makes sense why they wouldn’t be afraid.

Eh, sounds like survivorship bias tbh. First of, asymptomatic doesn't mean no temporary demage in the lungs. I know that a couple of soccer players had pretty serious pneumonias. It's not really life/carrier threatening, but you could lose a couple of months with covid.

TBF average american/world citizen in a much worse potition than those guys.

Hopefully, there would be less transmition in the bubble

If it's any consolation the UFC must have put up well over a hundred fights at this point and there have been no serious transmission issues. While MMA is obviously a smaller 1v1 sport the training definitely isn't. All of the fighters who are showing up are setting up their own training camps, likely training with many other guys with no testing on their end. So hopefully the NBA with all of their money and precautions will do well.

Lillard & Zion get a 2k20 cover - will the curse continue? Who gets traded, or changes teams?
