Expect Van Gundy to weigh 400 pounds after taking a job in New Orleans!
But, oh, those muffulettas and po-boy sandwiches are good!

As well as crawfish pasta and crawfish gumbo and crawfish salads. Yum!

NBA missed Revenue projections by $1.5 billion. Anyone want to divide that by 30 teams?


AP By TIM REYNOLDS October 23, 2020:

Revenue projections for the league this season were missed by about $1.5 billion, the person said. The losses were the result of a combination of factors — the shutdown caused by the pandemic, the cancelation of 171 regular-season games, completing the season in a bubble at Walt Disney World without fans, the nearly $200 million price tag for operating that bubble and a yearlong rift with the Chinese government that saw NBA games not shown on state television there.

The NBA is targeting December 22nd for the start of the 2020-21 season.

The NBA is targeting Tuesday, December 22nd for the start of the 20-21 season with a 72-game regular season that finishes before the 2021 Olympics begin on July 23rd. The league has started the season on a Tuesday in recent years with a doubleheader on TNT. Christmas Day falls on a Friday this year and would likely feature a full slate of games throughout the day on ABC, ESPN and TNT.

It would allow for players to participate in the summer Olympics.
