It sounds like these games wouldn't count which would be nice

it'll basically be a summer league. We're not going to see Steph, Klay, Draymond, KAT, LaVine, or any big names in this. Hell I wouldn't even send our starters. Let's see what Monk, McDaniels, and the Martin twins do with free reign.

I agree, give the young guys some run and a positive BBALL focus (looking at you Monk...)

I don't even mind that these games will be a glorified Summer League with few/no appearances by stars and starters. For a lot of the teams outside the bubble, including us, getting young guys some more run against NBA competition is valuable in and of itself. I'm not sure if this thing would get decent ratings, or even need to be televised, but it will be useful for young teams like ours.

Since 2020 has been so insane we should create Murder Hornets jerseys to wear whenever the team plays on the 20th of any month. I bet we'd go undefeated in those games.

They should have all of the lotto teams play for a championship. Champ gets number one pick and finals runner up gets number 2.
