    36% of the refs are out for safety protocols too....this is a super spreader to keep pretending it's safe to play indoor sports with fans and travel interstate to do it

    End of this third wave everyone will have gotten it whether they know it or not... people's mortgages depend on this game being played

    little kids don't have mortgages or vaccinations...adults will survive it but money cannot dictate public safety in my view...know your banker..nba players and coaches are probably financially fine. We're a full two months at least from getting through the third wave if South Africa is the metric to compare it too..we can only prolong it by spreading it more in the cold weather ..it loves cold weather by spring we should be out of hot water but now isn't the time

    Ref by watching remotely via the TV feed. Multiple angles, multiple refs.

    They can use the planet fitness lunk alarm

    Can they have drone refs? Then the actual refs just wear a VR headset and run around in an empty gym and the drone hovering above the game syncs up to their movement

    I didn't explain it very well but you get what I'm sayin..basically the same kind of technology we'll need when autonomous vehicles become a reality. Real-time mirroring of the actual refs eye movement. It'd be sick though!

    Bottom line. Until an NBA, NHL, NFL player dies, games will be played. But if half the league just goes in an out of protocol every six days, they’ll just plug and play and keep the money flowing.

    I am starting to lose respect for the the commish of the NBA and any sport at this moment as this virus is destroying the season and the leagues seem to care more about the all mighty buck then people.

    Screw Adam Silver and the NBA owners who have prolly told this loser make sure to keep the league open as long as possible so we do not lose as much money. I would almost bet money this convo has happened between the owners and the league but makes we wonder what the players reps are doing to protect them so maybe they are at fault too. All i know is this NBA season has been a giant cluster F*** and at this point as much as I would be sad not to see anymore Blazer games it might be time to consider shutting it down for a break or even the year at this point.
