    Not sure why this means really, but a good step to get back to some normalcy.

    Seems like that would give some teams a competitive advantage.

    Boise would be a great place for the blazers to practice.

    This is such a bad idea. Not fair to teams that can't open practice facility. Plus, I still think it's too soon to send a message to the world that everything is back to normal. Let's stay shutdown and end this thing as opposed to opening up and then having to close down again.

    Players are looking to fly to Georgia to use public gyms there.

    Thay doesn't make any sense... other states should allow teams to do whatever they want. If they have players isolated there is little risk. NBA teams are going to take the necessary precautions.

    Our CPA tax accountant is considered an "essential" business.... if some players need to work out states can allow it.

    It’s just for individual workouts. No group play. Assuming it’s held responsibly, I’m not sure there’s any big risk in that.

    As much as I love to watch basketball, football and movies. Joe Duffy the Local burger flipper is more important getting back to work then anyone in the sports, entertainment industry. You could probably add the news industry too. As good as this news is I want to see America back to work before 1 athlete/entertainer sets foot on a court/studio. I have only 1 fuck to give and it dam sure aint for some asshole who is behind on his Ferrari payments because he cant manage his money. BTW I had to refinance my truck just so we could eat while I was getting over the virus. I get to go back to work tomorrow so yeah I am happy that CPA's and bankers are "essential workers" just like me.
