    with the absolute shitshow going on in florida, anyone wanna start taking bets that this tournament actually plays through completion? what about even starts? a number of players and staff throughout the league have tested positive in the last couple weeks. I think mls actually has a better chance of playing than the nba does, given that one is outside and the other is inside and usually players are much closer together at all times in basketball.

    i'm tired of this. i hope we get this done... but more than that, i hope we aren't being careless about this and putting any of our players' or staff's health second to money. there's enough of that in our politics right now; i don't want to that in my sports too.

    yeah as i understand it , the chances gotta be fairly slim.. I mean all it takes is one player and a whole team has to sit out for 2 weeks right?

    Even if they somehow manage to get this tournament through, I cannot see how they could have a regular season with the pandemic situation.

    Not looking good. 2 players have tested positive since arriving in Florida. With the virus out of control in that State, I don't see how any "bubble" will be real effective.
