Might as well contract these other teams getting robbed of TV games, parked for likely a year's worth of time and sht on by the commisioner that brought gambling, TV theatre coerced game action, the best refs known to sports (wink), who allowed superteam building, generally removed competitiveness from half the league and helped get China's communist money involved. Three cheers for this bastard.
I agree with you, at first. at the least, allow the other 8 teams to play in their own bubble, own playoffs.it probably won't be as intense as the other 22 game group, but it does give them a chance to get on the court and get some air time.
however, the logistics of getting the 22 team restart successfully operational is going to a risky challenge. it will take enormous resources and collaboration. Perhaps, the league is worried that staff, teams, refs will be tapped out. And putting resources into the 8 team left-overs may spread the NBA too thin- and cause it all to fail.
I want a playoffs. I want 16 healthy teams. this country needs a distraction.
