    Seems like Bowerman’s Boner would be a good nickname.

    Now theme parks are planning to open. So pretty much everything will be allowed (to some degree) except going to a game? Can’t see that lasting. If I were a betting man I’d say there will be fans by July. Bet the nba is waiting for just that.

    Here’s what a dumbass like me would consider:

    limited capacity that’ll gradually increase
    temperature checks
    Masks everywhere except at your seat
    Some kind of digital entry

    So: if they did that, somebody would test positive. Then what do you do? I just don't see it before a vaccine. Believe it or not, HCP is right.

    What do you mean what do you do? Who would test positive? A temperature check doesn’t = a corona test. What is he right about? That there won’t be fans? I’d bet against that.

    The season will have an asterisk by it anyways, I say do something different. How about a best of 3 games, tournament style with all 30 teams? No conferences, lottery predicted and upsets incoming.

    There already are fans. Taiwan baseball league not only are allowing fans in the stadium, but they have doubled their limit within the past week. It’s only a matter of time until there are fans in America.

    now explain to me how allowing 30,000 people into Disney world is different than allowing a limited numbers of fans into an arena.

    Why not just play at the PF for each team?
