The NBA lays out coronavirus protocols for the 2019-20 season

Unlike the 2019-20 NBA season restart, the 2020-21 NBA season will happen in home markets while the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.

The United States is averaging about 200,000 cases of coronavirus tests daily, and it will only get worse. Meanwhile, the NBA is starting next season IN HOME MARKETS because, as Swedish singer Meja said in the 1990s ... it’s all ‘bout the money!

The song is 22 years old now, but it’s still relevant today. In terms of actual money, the NBA could generate an additional $500 million to $1 billion by playing games on Christmas, COVID-19 be damned.
