Uncovering the hidden consequences of playing in a pandemic

With the condensed schedule, postponed games, near empty stadiums, and the new “health and safety protocols” this NBA season has been far from normal. That being said, I can’t be the only one who is extremely grateful for the fact that we still have basketball to entertain us while we’re all stuck at home. Honestly, from a fan’s point of view I love the shorter breaks between games because it means I get to watch the Celtics play more often, even with all the ups and downs.

Adam Silver, the NBPA, and the Board of Governors spent a great deal of time planning out how to safely allow teams to play this season and try to retain as much revenue as possible.
