If the Olympics happen, it will be players who aren't in the playoffs who are allowed to play.

That said, the Olympics are likely to be postponed this year. Just don't think it's going to happen this year.

Apparently a couple of the Lakers tested positive for the virus. They add to the growing list of NBA personnel that have it, like Kevin Durant, and Marcus Smart of the Celtics.

I would be really surprised if we don't see games till much later this year.

There is not going to be any games this year. Season over. The governor thinks half the people in the state will have the virus with in 8 weeks. It's only going to get worse. --Yohe

The Chinese basketball league was shut down on February 1. Players are being called back to restart the league in early April.

I do not believe we will be stopped that short. But depending on how you define "this year":

* there's a 0.00% chance there will be no NBA games through December 31, 2020

* I stand by the fact that the NBA badly wants to have some resolution to the 2019/2020 season.

They have months to figure that out.

* * * * *

I'm not arguing that our country isn't seriously fucked, and the idiot in the White House along with the party, media and voters who follow him like sheep haven't fucked it up far worse than it should have been. We are fucked and he fucked it up bad.

I'd bet a dinner on it. Guess I could mail it to you.--Yohe

Olympics officially moved to 2021.

So assuming next season starts at Christmas and ends in June, maybe the beginning of a truncated regular season? Or if they go along with the plan to have the Finals in July/August. That would mean perhaps no "Dream Team" at the Olympics next year.
