so this is how it could have played out...
the family has a birthday party for Paul.
his school-aged children pass the virus (75% of kids have had it).
he has symptoms game 6, but he (and Monty) knows if he gets tested and has it, he's out
and the rest of the team would have to get tested too, and more would likely be out
so they take the gamble
Paul tests positive AFTER game 7
and the other players who may or may not have had it,
may never have even tested for it at that point
then Doncic had obvious symptoms, and Dallas took the same risk
did it start with Paul
or did it start even earlier with the Pelican's taking the risk?
or, to get real--real, did it start from a fan in the arena?
someone mentioned the risk of the Suns giving it to fans
but, hell, there are no restrictions and protocols on nearly 100,000 fans in the building
