I think it was a terrible call to discriminate the 8. No reason that they couldn't have been included

^^^Meh.

There are worse scenarios. Specifically, Orlando. Where they get brought back to play largely meaningless games and lose a top young player to a serious injury for the next year for essentially nothing.

Maybe, but you do know that Trae, Hunter and Cam have been playing pickup at The Skill Factory. They are still only allowed 1 player, 1 coach at the Practice facility.

Yet after our report on Tuesday detailed the widespread pessimism about a second bubble location being created or in-market camps being allowed for those eight, with front office executives deeply concerned about the prospect of their players going eight-plus months without playing in an NBA-approved team setting, sources say NBA officials made it clear during a Wednesday call with governors that they are still trying to find a solution here. The problem, of course, is that almost every idea that has been considered comes with the kind of COVID-19 risk that isn’t seen as worthy of the hoops reward.

Except, perhaps, this one: What if those eight teams joined the rest of their colleagues inside the Walt Disney World bubble for training after the eliminated teams departed? Sources say the NBA has been exploring that possibility for quite some time now, and that the idea was raised most recently on the aforementioned governors call. And in some ways, it makes perfect sense.

As NBPA executive director Michele Roberts has made clear all along, the union has been skeptical of any basketball setting that doesn’t match the Orlando approach in terms of precautions and protocol. But starting on Aug. 17, when six teams go home and the 16-team playoffs begin, space will be opening up inside this three-hotel, three-court, (seemingly) COVID-free community they have created.

Consider the vacancy timeline from there: From 16 teams to eight on Sept. 1 (the start of the second round, when players are allowed to bring family into the bubble for the first time), four teams on Sept. 15 (start of the conference finals), and two teams on Sept. 30 (the start of the Finals, with a possible Game 7 on Oct. 13).

No matter what ultimately happens here, this much is clear: Someone is bound to be upset, whether it’s the general managers who have been hoping that the NBA changes its stance about non-playing staff being able to bring in family, the Delete Eight teams that have every reason to worry about their place in the program or some other faction that has its own gripes. Such is life for NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who has done a wondrous job with this pandemic project to this point yet has plenty of work left to do.

peace forever

It's fair for the non bubble teams to play each other, and if everyone is covid free they can play a few games vs. bubble teams. For example the Hawks haven't played Memphis yet so there's one, also the Pels I believe.

Then the top tier teams resting starters get to play the super lotto teams like us in preparation to get their reserves playoff ready vs. a hungry team. Time constraints is the issue here the more time goes w/o a decision.

My guess at the 10 Hawks players:

Trae, Huerter, Reddish, Hunter, Collins, Capela, Bruno, Goodwin, 2 of Bembry, Skal, Jones (he's been at the facility).

Charlie Brown from the Skyhawks is my lone guess.

Am I crazy to hope Collins (and to a lesser extent, Trae) skip playing in the bubble to avoid injury of any type?

Charlie Brown was with the Pacers in the bubble. I assume that means he's no longer Hawks property?

yes you are.


They're basketball players. At some point you have to accept that basketball players need to play basketball. You can't hide from the possibility of injuries forever. Just ask the Pelicans how that strategy is working out with Zion.

Thank you.

And let's not pretend like they're not out playing basketball in unsanctioned arenas and events while "resting". Which is worse?
