I wonder if the league is putting plans in place for a possible playoff bubble?
owners don't want to pay. Plus players also would have to give up additional portion of their salary
everyone loses .... though it would be a safer environment
I think you also have to consider television and radio in all of this. Will ESPN, TNT, and ABC want to deal with possible game cancellations and constantly rescheduling programming that most people will not see. It's these networks that are paying the owners.
BTW, why would the players have to give up salary, if they play in a bubble in the playoffs?
You cant do long long stretches of bubble life
All I know is there were no game postponements in the bubble. The league hasn't even gone through the first month of this season, and there have already been multiple games and teams affected. It's one thing to postpone regular season games, but it's something completely different when it comes to the playoffs. Also, if fans aren't allowed in the arenas, what difference does it make if a team plays at home?
BTW, I'm not saying the league should have a playoff bubble. I'm just wondering if they're talking about it and making plans now, in case it's needed.
