It doesn’t seem like there’s going to be an NBA season anytime soon.
On Friday night’s 11pm SportsCenter, ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst talked about the current negotiations between the NBA and the NBAPA and how there’s growing pessimism that this season can be salvaged.
“I’ve talked to both sides of this issue and it is clear the NBA is angling to set up a deal that enables them to shut the season down. Now, they don’t have to do that yet, and the way they’re negotiating, they’re leaving themselves an option either way…they are not having talks about how to restart the league. They are having financial talks about what would happen if the season shuts down and I think there is a significant amount of pessimism right now.”
Lakers’ Jared Dudley responded to Windhort’s story by saying that final decision won’t until June 1st to see where the country is at in regards to the public health crisis.
Just like everyone in the world right now we’re going to have to wait and see how things pan out the next few months.
