The start date of the 2020-21 NBA regular season could still be up in the air, with the Chicago Bulls going on eight months without playing a game.

Potentially the hottest topic of debate, not just around the Chicago Bulls camp, but throughout the entire NBA landscape at this point of the likely shortened offseason is when the next regular season will start. The latest whispers surrounding the potential start date to what would be a 72-game 2020-21 regular season are set for Dec. 22.

A pre-Christmas start date is largely position for the looming NBA regular season to make up for a loss in revenue and wrap up the 2021 playoffs as soon as possible before the delayed Summer Olympics that are set to take place in Tokyo, Japan.
