While Coronavirus continues to be the center of our lives, many sports are starting to find ways to return. The return of these sports are helping in a way for our lives to feel “normal”. I am excited to report that the NBA Season will continue and it will be a very exciting return! Here is a first look at what the plan is for the NBA’s Return:

  • Training Camp: Training camp for all teams will be held in Orlando during the month of July, ahead of the season’s restart.
    • Players WILL undergo daily COVID-19 testing and will be required to practice social distancing.
  • Return To Play Format: The season will resume with 22 teams in Orlando beginning July 30th, every team will play 8 regular-season games to determine playoff sending.
  • 22 Teams: Aside of the 16 playoff teams in the picture, the following teams have been invited to fight for the 8th playoff berth in their respective conferences:
    • New Orleans Pelicans.
    • San Antonio Spurs.
    • Portland Trail Blazers.
    • Sacramento Kings.
    • Phoenix Suns.
    • Washington Wizards.
  • Potential Play-In: This might actually be the coolest part of the whole return! “Should a #8 seed have a 4-game lead at the end of the regular season then that team will be awarded the final spot.” The flip side is that if they don’t, then the #8 and #9 seed will compete in a play-in tournament. Here’s the kicker though: “The #8 seed only needs to win once, the #9 seed must win twice to claim the final playoff spot” Yikes!!!
