NBA Needs 33 Days To Complete Regular Season, Maximum 55 Days For Full Playoffs 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri May 1, 2020 4:28 pm

The NBA needs approximately three months to fully complete their season while playing almost no back-to-backs.


There are 259 regular season games remaining on the schedule in the regular season, which would take 33 days.


To play a full four-round postseason with minimal days off, the NBA would need a maximum of 55 days.


The 2016 playoffs lasted 64 days from April 16th until Game 7 of The Finals between the Cavaliers and Warriors on June 19th.

Realistically, the NBA needs to start the season in July in order to begin the next one in late December. The players need to rest, free agency, the draft if there is one,. They need time to work it out

The NBA needs to finally shut it down and focus on better days to come. Every idea and possible plan to reopen has serious flaws and health risks.
