SIXERS AND NBA COULD BEGIN PLAY AGAIN IN 30 DAYS!

By Harvey Hoffman

NBA owners have been encouraging NBA commish Adam Silver to reevaluate the league’s suspension of play in 30 days, ESPN is reporting.

Silver, in an interview on TNT, confirmed that the NBA will take that 30-day hiatus and use the time to further discuss whether the league can resume play and how it can do so.

“Of course the issue becomes now, what we determined today, is that this hiatus will be most likely at least 30 days,” Silver said. “And we don’t know enough to be more specific than that. But we wanted to give direction to our players and teams and fans that this is going to be roughly at least a month.

“But then the question becomes is there a protocol frankly with or without fans in which we can resume play,” Silver continued. “I think the goal [is] … what makes sense here without compromising anyone’s safety. It’s frankly too early to tell.”

In a letter addressed to NBA fans, Silver made it clear that the league has every intention of resuming the season “if and when it becomes safe for all concerned.”

“In the meantime, we will continue to coordinate with infectious disease and public health experts along with government officials to determine safe protocols for resuming our games,” Silver wrote.

Silver also said tickets already purchased for a postponed game “will be honored when the game is rescheduled.” If games are not played or played in an empty arena, teams will work with fans “on a credit for a future game or a refund.”

“This remains a complicated and rapidly evolving situation that reminds us that we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to look out for one another,” Silver wrote. “That is what the NBA will continue to do.”
