Former Nugget and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose: No asterisk on an NBA champion this year

If the NBA returns this season and a champion is crowned, there will be no asterisk attached to the title winner, according to former Nugget and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose.

As the NBA readies to make a decision on potentially returning in the coming weeks, there’s nothing concrete as to how the league will proceed. Finish regular season games? Jump right into a modified playoffs? No one knows as this point. Although there’s been positive momentum recently, including calls between NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the league’s board of governors, the coronavirus itself will dictate what’s possible from the NBA’s perspective.
