It seems like the NBA players and owners are beginning to feel optimistic about resuming the season at some point in the coming months.
According to Yahoo Sports’ NBA insider Chris B. Haynes revealed that several of the biggest NBA superstars were involved in a private conference call and formed a united front to resume the season.
Some of the NBA’s biggest superstars formed a united front to resume the 2019-20 season during a private conference call Monday, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Chris Paul, the president of the players association, arranged the call that included LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook, sources said.
Toward the end of the call discussing the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic, all parties were in agreement to take the court with proper safety measures once the league is given the green light to commence, sources said.
NBA owners also spoke on Tuesday and are also feeling positive about restarting the season in Las Vegas or Orlando.
Adam Silver has told owners that they expect to make a decision in 2-4 weeks.
Both players and owners have a lot to figure out in the next few weeks but it really looks like they’re going to give it a shot.
