Concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the 2019-20-20 NBA season restart plan, Mr. Adam Silver shared his current situation.
The blueprint for the restart of the season with 22 teams at Disney World Resort has been released. The owner of the team has passed and the NBPA player association also approved. After that, the detailed schedule was established and officially announced a few days ago. Accompanying it is a strict public health assurance process.
Despite clear plans and procedures, the NBA is unlikely to be restarted
However, despite all of this, the NBA is sure that it will bring the 2019-20 season back to the fans. According to the share of NBA executive committee member Adam Silver, everything is in the plan. However, nothing is certain at this time.
As long as something is not right, we are willing to review what has been planned and change the plan to ensure everyone’s safety.
The number of COVID-19 infections in Orlando, Florida is rising, causing doubts for the NBA
By this time, it’s good to see Adam Silver and the NBA management ready to cancel the season. Flexibility in this difficult period is extremely important.
For example, now that the number of infections in Florida is increasing (where the rest of the season is expected to be), the risk of COVID-19 infiltration into the NBA focus area in Orlando has also increased, causing General safety is affected.
Although experts feel quite good and confident in the NBA’s plan, they still feel concerned because the number of cases is showing signs of sudden increase.
By the time Orlando is no longer safe enough, the NBA will be forced to look at another option, such as tightening the number of people in the assembly area or canceling the intention to organize the competition completely.
Everything is being carefully considered and the NBA is ready to change the reboot plan if needed. To this point, the NBA shares that everything is still under control, including the number of COVID-19 infections.
The organizer understands that there will be a growing number of players positive for SARS-CoV-2 because players come from so many places, not only in the United States but also in a number of other countries.
Only when COVID-19 spreads strongly within a team will it be an alarm. Luckily, this has not happened. The most dangerous case is currently the Denver Nuggets. The team has many cases of COVID-19 infection but is said to “everything is under control”.
