Someone tell Ayton not to get into foul trouble!!!
You have to wonder if there is pressure to play the games since they are national televised on TNT.
We agree. It feels risky much like the Wizards game. I'd prefer the game be postponed as well.
plus it’s MLK Day
IN MEMPHIS no less
I don’t think the NBA will expose the players to undue risk, but I wonder if they have some tiny discretion in edge cases to yay or nay.
Smith, Saric and Jones stay in Phoenix.
so Jalen Smith is just gonna sit out the season huh nice, got it
that’s great just great
Man, this Covid season is getting super annoying.
So are not being able to visit families and friends, keep stores
open, send kids to school, eat out in restaurants, etc.
As long as people, especially Arizonans (we are the worst in
the nation), continue to fight solving the virus, each year will
be another year of failure to do so.
The new administration will follow the scientists and doctors and
have the right words, but will the people listen? Soon we will begin
Not until political gridlock is recognized as hazardous to our health
will we see progress.
That is what is really annoying! Not being able to watch a ballgame
on TV is low on the priority list.
I agree that watching a ball game on TV pales in comparison to all the other things we're doing without but in a way that's made it even more important. Not important enough to jeopardize the health of anyone but pretty important nonetheless. JMO.
We need to go back to the bubble. ASAP
The part in bold is why a ballgame is important.
Sports provides some sanity in a world torn apart by the pandemic, job loss and politics.
Done correctly like in the Orlando bubble, sports without fans poses minimal risk to the public.
I blame the players. For example I’m assuming smith is single. Obviously young and has some money. And who was the first to go on the suns covid list?
These guys just have too much money to not just sit at the hotel or avoid going out. It’s a money thing and a nba culture thing.
just bubble them for 3 weeks at time. Week off. Back on again. Idk what else would could be done to have a season. At this point I’ve kind of checked out, it’s becoming less interesting with all the pauses and not having a full roster available. Every game at this point has an asterisk beside it.
I don't think an individual player should be singled out. Lots of players in the NBA are on health and safety protocol. It doesn't take much to get exposed.
It would have probably been smart for NBA to go back to the Orlando bubble concept but I doubt the players wanted to do it.
Hard gm booker vs jorant....
Be nice to see ayton break out....
Go suns big gm here
