NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, said on a conference call Friday that the league is considering delaying next season. The statement leaves the door open to finishing the 2019-2020 season.
What Does This Mean?
The NBA and its players are not losing faith in the season that is under suspension. Commissioner Adam Silver is still weighing all options, but his first priory is safety. Yes, everyone wants closure with this season, but Adam Silver is staying precocious throughout this whole pandemic. There is no time table for a return as the Commissioner has stated that the league will have to wait until at least May 1st to see where this COVID-19 pandemic stands.
The NBA playoffs were supposed to begin today, and multiple teams had a shot at winning a championship. It is unfortunate to think about it because the 2019-2020 playoffs were going to be historic. For the first time in five seasons, we were going to see a new team from the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. After seven seasons not in the playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers were back and were the number one seed. With no Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Eastern Conference was wide open. No one could predict what was going to happen. It’s a disappointing turn of events that has happened these last two months.

I am all for starting next season late. That season does not matter right now. It is the current season that is on hold. It would not feel right if this season just went to waste and just completely start over. I am all for continuing to find ways to salvage this season because players, for example, like LeBron James, might only have a handful of years left.
