They would have done it by now
Man this is the best season to take a break from basketball and just tank it… can’t wait for the draft and lottery
But the Almighty buck affects people. If everything shut down, lots of people suffer. I think we should press on but if they called off the season altogether, as a Blazers fan, I'd be fine with that. It's not like 2020 where I thought we had unfinished business and the season was reaching a climax.
This thing is…
At this rate it shouldn’t be long before this wave is over.. 3 or 4 weeks?
Ahh ohh slowly the nba is waving the white flag. Next it’s going to be no quarantining for asymptomatic positive cases. Then after that nobody is going to even test anymore
Maybe things are looking up? From ESPNInsider article on teams most AFFECTED/EFFECTED by Covid19......
Interesting thing.....says Cleveland has been impacted the most. Missing the most minutes and WARP. While The Jazz and Pels the least. Jazz haven't a a player miss ONE game.
The article says that it's limited to Covid impacts only:
"Note: Let's quickly explain the methodology here. Based on games players have missed either in protocols or due to subsequent reconditioning through Sunday, "minutes lost" is calculated using players' minutes per game multiplied by games missed. Wins above replacement player lost (WARP lost) is calculated using players' per-game rating in my player metric multiplied by games missed. One caveat: Players already sidelined by injury, such as Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz, don't count as lost if they are in the protocols because they would be unavailable either way."
It would be interesting to see some sort of analysis that includes time missed by injured players. The injuries to Dame and CJ have probably had more impact on the Blazers' record than Covid.
I jinxed it!
Guess where they played last night?
but our offense would remain the same
This is hitting not just players and coaches. Taking out support staff left and right!
Teams across the league have lost their TV directors and producers and guys like me for weeks including Blazers Broadcasting. And officially starting tomorrow we will no longer be traveling with the team to cover games. Until further notice we will be working back at the Moda Center broadcasting the games. Like last year, going to be a shit show.
I'm just really glad that they haven't cut any games from the schedule so your still getting paid. Hoping it stays that way. Sorry to hear about your colleagues. I think we're all seeing it.
My rate on the road is a lot more, so I will lose a ton of money because of this, but you’re right, at least I’m working.
damn sorry to hear that but like you said at least your working somehow still fam..
What happened to that bald dude that works with ya btw? Saw a bunch of ppl wishing him well
