  • NBA to (possibly) resume season at WDW

    Per the New York Times:
    The N.B.A. is in the early stages of discussions with the Walt Disney Company to restart its suspended season in late July at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, a league spokesman said Saturday.

    The restart, said Mike Bass, the spokesman, would be at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, which would act as “a single site for an N.BA. campus for games, practices and housing.” ESPN, which is owned by Disney, is a broadcast partner for the N.B.A.
    There are still several hurdles that must be crossed before a resumed season at Walt Disney World becomes a reality. One is the optics of testing. The league was criticized when some of its teams were able to obtain tests for their players even though there was a nationwide testing shortage, raising questions of greater accessibility for the wealthy.
    As mentioned in the article, they would be playing with no fans present.

    There is a high chance that all NBA players, coaches and associated workers involved, would be staying at the hotels to keep them quarantined.

    Who would of thunk that ESPN could partially bailout Disney?
    The league is in discussions with its players’ union and the Walt Disney Company about restarting its season — suspended since March 11 — at the Orlando-based resort in late July.
