Report: NBA Hopes to Wrap up Season by Labor Day
Although the 2019-2020 basketball season came to a grinding halt on March 12th, NBA officials are hoping to finish the season sometime before Labor Day. Citing unnamed sources, ESPN on Tuesday reported league executives are hoping to stage the championship game on Labor Day weekend. With 13 to 16 regular-season games left to play for each team, officials are discussing reducing the number of remaining games and trimming down the best-of-seven playoff series to best-of-five, per ESPN.
There’s even been talk of following the path of Major League Baseball, which is reportedly close to moving its entire 2020 season to Arizona’s spring training facilities. In the NBA’s case, league officials have considered finishing the season in Las Vegas, where the games would be played without fans present, according to ESPN.
Question: Would watching a televised game without the roar of a crowd be as enjoyable?
