    Cavs fans have already issued a voluntary ban on attending Cavs games.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Just wait--next CBA lockout, owners are going to demand that if in future they ever have to play games without allowing fans in, part of it comes out out the player salary pool.

    Partially kidding, partially not.

    I see in one article it says fans will be reimbursed for the amount they paid for their tickets. I wonder what happens to tickets that have been sold second hand. Does the person holding the ticket get the reimbursement or the person who originally bought the ticket. This is going to be a mess.

    It already does. The salary cap is based on a percentage of the basketball related income. Last year gate revenue accounted for 25.1% of that BRI. This is going to be a major loss.

    Although I agree, it is pretty much a plague if you are over 60. I'm not, so I'm looking to book some real cheap flights.

    This loss of revenue after the China shit during the preseason must have some of those owners upset

    Saw one of the NBA reporters tweet that the league is considering postponing the schedule - which would help us obviously.

    maybe, but the last I heard was the vaccine won't be available for 12-18 months; and there's a good chance that the rate of infection will slow down during the summer but come back big time next fall and winter. If a vaccine isn't widely available till a year from now, next season could be toast

    Hopefully all other teams pull their heads out of their asses and do the same.
