    I was specifically talking to HCP because I know he isn’t some minimum salary cashier, as I’m pretty sure the Blazers pay enough for someone to build a savings if they’re financially prudent. (Not saying you’re a min. Salary employee, just stating why I said that.)

    And yes, as a Blazer YouTuber, it’s gonna be tough.

    I would also say though that when I started my entrepreneurial journey and my own YT channel, I had enough i savings where I wasn’t worried about how my channel would do for at least 6-12 months. (Affiliate links for software products mainly.)

    I feel bad for you though; it’s clear you’ve worked hard. I do hope you (if you haven’t already) save a lot of what you earn for this reason. Particularly as I know the ups and downs of the income flow of YT.

    You can still make videos FAM just change your aspect. I’m sure your viewers have their opinions on this and want to hear yours as well. This is almost unprecedented; weigh in and hear what they have to say as well. Keep your viewers informed as information develops, talk about what this means for the Blazers going forward, hindsight on the season, looking towards the future - etc...

    And yet "The CDC researchers estimate that the H1N1 2009 pandemic virus caused 201,200 respiratory deaths and another 83,300 deaths from cardiovascular disease associated with H1N1 infections." Total: 284,000 deaths. Very little was done back then or nearly to this extent and the media hysteria/coverage was so much different.

    you STILL think this is media driven?

    Holy hell, dude. Look at what's happening in Italy. We are about 10 days away from that.

    If anything, this is a saving grace for us. If we made the playoffs, our life would be short. Best to rest, get healthy and come back with a vengeance next season.

    The silver lining is the L*kers were primed to win it all. F*** LA.

    Depending on the year, 70% of my income comes from the Blazers. As I type this, I’m watching my wife cry. Haven’t felt like this in my house since the lockout. That nearly ruined us.....

    The words used were hiatus and suspended. So I don't think that the season is over. I think the league will be suspended for hopefully just a month and likely finish the playoffs in July. I think the draft will be moved back. The Summer Leagues might be impacted but I predict a full 82 game season, with a full playoff.

    Does CJ give a damn about anything other than money? He has 100+ mil guaranteed. Think about the people who you work alongside, who are paycheck to paycheck, depend on the games for their livelihood, who also don't have the luxury or avenues to further enhance their careers. I like CJ, but he comes off as a such a prick sometimes. These were his initial reactions to the news tonight. Not concern for health, or wellbeing of his colleagues, but his money.

    No wonder the NBPA is such a joke.
