I’m old enough to remember all the woke people on this board clamoring for a shut down of the season (and everything else) because it’s not safe.

You're doing a victory lap now while the US is still leading the world in Covid-stupidity? What the hell does a pandemic have to do with "woke" anyway?

Yeah professional epidemiologists say lockdown with test and trace which is what the NBA and nations that are recovering are going for, then you have the awesome success that is Florida.

If Khris is in good form that's huge.
Patty and Bled getting covid right now is a problem but plenty of time to get well, it's only really the play offs we care about at this point. As long as they feel well enough to exercise and stay in shape, which it sounds they are.

Giannis looks like he had another one of those summers that he added something.

I can't wait :)

Here in VIC Australia we did the shut down thing and we managed to have a long stretch with practically zero new cases. Then as soon as we relaxed a little it completely got away from us and now we have more daily new cases then ever. So we shut down even harder to the point where masks are mandatory even in offices and in some cases they locked people inside in their apartments in big buildings where there was an outbreak. And yet it's still climbing.

There's absolutely no **** around with this thing.

Tremendous amounts of crap left out here. Testing is widely available now and people are going now to see if they had covid earlier this year (which antibody tests count as positives too). Death rates are cratered in comparison to april when they were only testing people that came into the ER basically. This graph is literal toilet paper.

Play ball.

I don't know why anybody needs to go the "told you so" route regardless of what happens. Two weeks without any positive tests is a great start but the season is going to last three months. It might finish and it might not. The NBA's plan is a solid plan created by experts and approved by Dr. Fauci. The people inside the campus are undeniably safer than those outside it. On the other hand, we have Dwight Howard out there saying masks and social distancing aren't necessary on the campus because it's so safe. That's exactly the attitude that will lead to bringing the virus into the campus. All it will take to ruin this season is four or five Lakers players testing positive during the playoffs.

That's simply not the case. You even contradicted yourself in the next sentence. If I work from home, I'm not going to get the virus.

I meant as a whole they are safer, not safer than every single person outside the campus. In your scenario, assuming you don't live with other people who could infect you, you're right. But that lifestyle constitutes a minority of people. If not for the campus, most NBA players would not be staying inside their homes and avoiding contact with others.

Let me put it another way. The NBA players inside the Disney campus are safer right now than the players on the eight teams that were not invited.

So what is the denominator on this? How many positives for how many tests, the most basic question even Jason Kidd would ask analytically

And we know the US has far exceeded any country in testing, which any of us stat nerds would expect higher positives.

The article I posted about the false positives in Florida once you remove front he pile it puts the positive rate around 7-8% as I recall which is in line with national average.

Oh and I’ll add the reason I care is because my dad is insanely high risk and lives in Florida and we have discussed this very topic.

Dude has been a smoking for like 50 years and probably has like 10% lung capacity. So
We looked into what was going on, not just word of mouth stuff.

He gets it and he likely dies. So I don’t take this lightly

I absolutely wanted Brogdon over Midds but let’s be real, did anybody actually expect Middleton to get better? Deep down you all know you didn’t. But he did and I am happy to be wrong.
