I really think rushing back to play TV studio basketball borders on reality TV. I agree w the poster. See ya next season just like a labour stoppage. Do not risk players health. Somebody could get permanently damaged.
Regular folks are going to work. My father has been working non stop because he counts as an essential worker and my mother has been called back to work for over a month. Some of my friends fall under the same boat. I don’t see how having NBA players in a bubble which should be safer than just being outside is that bad.
If one of us regular folks gets sick, we don't show up to work and quarantine for 14 days. If an NBA player gets sick, he may potentially infect other players who may in turn get sick. Sick NBA Player A must quarantine and more than likely will be ineligible for the rest of the season. I'm sure you can appreciate how quickly this can turn into a messy situation, right? In the Russian Premier League, one of the teams a week ago had to field a team full of 16 year olds because their main team all had to be quarantined. Imagine if 3 guys break curfew, get sick, then infect their teammates in a practice. Wtf then? lol.
So again the exact same thing happens to regular folk as players. You have symptoms? Isolate and get tested and test all your coworkers. Except the players coworkers are already getting tested every single day. Also the players have a benefit the rest of us do not, they can choose to skip the season if they don't feel safe and still have a job too come back to.
Russian premier league is not in a bubble
