I am starting to think this was a huge mistake to have season in a non bubble environment. The league is risking these players lives as well as anyone that is with the players. They should have  simply waited until early summer after the players got vaccine’s as well. God forbid a player dies or someone who gets this from  a player.

Hope Kat and all others have no issues with this and get better.

This sport is the easiest to spread covid. The players are practically on top of each other during a game and their sweat and breathe is all over that court in an enclosed environment. Without what they did this past summer, keeping the players free of this is impossible.

Why not wait for that vaccine to be distributed? I am actually ashamed by the league as they just stand by and continue to allow this to get worse. If someone dies from this, they are responsible.

I don’t think the players want to be stuck in a bubble for 6 months. Playoffs should be, but the entire season would be brutal.

Seems like the league is doing ok with all this. Postponed games don't hurt as much when fans aren't buying tickets anyway and the league doesn't seem to be a hotbed of viral spread more than other segments of society. With numbers decreasing, vaccinations increasing and springtime coming, we may have seen the worst already.

Knicks announce they’re selling tickets now for between $50 and $380.

You need proof of a negative CoViD test to get in. Test has to be within 72 hours of the game.

That's less than ideal.

The Raptors say six members of the coaching staff, including head coach Nick Nurse, will not be on the bench for tonight's game against the Rockets.

I should've been clear: they will not be on the bench due to the NBA's Health and Safety Protocols.

If Nurse has tested positive they need to quarantine any official that's seen the Raptors in the last week.
