    This thread is for NBA Basketball talk. If you want to talk NBA/Covid19 stuff please go to the Covid NBA thread in the Covid19 forum.

    Last i checked the NBA wants players to report to Disney July 7th-9th. Games to start on July 15th. I'm sure some of these dates might be subject to change etc.

    When it's all said and done this title might be slightly tainted, but a title is still a title, may the best team win.

    Just looking forward to having hoops again.

    Might slightly tainted. But definitely not enough to where its a fake title. Will be an interesting post season either way

    I think the first few games might look ugly. I wonder how many players have been doing some kind of personal workouts and how many did nothing.

    I think it's 1 game every 2nd day for 30 days, 15 games total, playoffs start after the 15 games are over. I think the 8 worst teams when the season stopped aren't invited to this part 2 of the season. NBA might have changed some of this since i last read up on it.

    Word is Marc Gasol has slimmed down.

    Earlier i claimed the NBA games would start on July 15th, i think that has been moved to July 30th.

    Just grateful for basketball of any sort at this point.
    My Mavs making this playoffs is pretty sweet given where they've been the last few years.
    I think Dallas and Luka really benefit from the break and restart.

    Will be interesting to see which of the LA teams handles the restart best.

    The all day schedule is kinda weird. Gonna have to DVR a lot of games for viewing after work.
    But, again, I am grateful.

    I expect the ratings on this to be insanely high and it will be even more so with whatever football we get.

    As a soccer fan I am seeing that in the EPL. It's not 100% with no attendance at games but viewership is high as there is no competition.

    To me it looks like Zion is out of shape, i saw the same thing when he was at Duke. Looks like he can't carry his upper body without a struggle.

    https://www.pcgamer.com/the-nba-restart-takes-fake-crowds-to-a-new-level-of-weirdness/

    NBA's effort, which as CNN explains, uses a combination of artificial intelligence and a 'tap-to-cheer app' to provide some semblance of atmosphere for home viewers. Similar to the fake MLB 'Cheering at the Ballpark' announced last week, sofa-bound audiences are able to use the NBA and WNBA apps to cheer for their team at the push of a button.



    Then, using Microsoft Teams' 'Together Mode', up to 300 images of fans in the NBA Orlando bubble stadium can be 'present' on 17-foot-tall screens. It's this visual crowd replacement that I find most distracting. It even reminds me of the Micheal Jordan film, Space Jam, albeit with a rather different ratio of animation versus real-world movement.

    My baby Mavs still can't close out games but can lose by 2 to the best of them.
    This is reason 49035340560834568 why tanking is so bad.
    It takes so long to build a real and true contender.

    My fellow MFFL are going to have to be patient it appears.
    --tho who knows as Carlisle is such a weird dude that he could be throwing out nonsense and letting the team learn on it's own knowing a playoff spot is secure.

    DONCIC!

    Youngest player since Oscar Roberson to get a 30-20-10 triple-double
    (34points, 20 rebounds, 12 assists)
    :yourock:
    And in NBA history, only 3 other players have matched his stat line; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain,
