League leadership is handling this poorly. Multiple teams are starting to have outbreaks
It would have been a certain hardship for many people, but I can't help thinking that the league should have done a Bubble 2.0 if they really wanted to stay safe. Because not just peoples' lives are at stake, but you can still be subject to permanent or semi-permanent damage if it takes your body too long to fight off a case of CV19. Spencer sounds like he had a pretty bad case for example, and who knows if that didn't make him more vulnerable to injury...?
So I'm thinking maybe they could have done some strategic pauses during the season (maybe two strategic breaks?) in order to let people visit with their families. Some kind of hybrid solution that would be an improvement over the first Bubble, anyway. Because this thing about having 30 teams constantly traveling around the country does seem like a recipe for failure. Especially when you have guys like Harden who just don't care, and likes to attend mask-less indoor parties & events as he pleases.
