The NBA 2019/2020 season will end no later than October 12

According to famous journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA management board has set the latest timeline for the 2019-2020 NBA season to close on October 12.

According to the journalist, the NBA management is aiming to continue the 2019/2020 season from July 31 with the participation of 22 teams at the Disney Wolrd Resort in Orlando. On Thursday this week, the NBA board will hold a vote with the team leaders.

If at least two thirds of the tournament’s teams agree with this plan, it will be officially approved. According to journalist Wojnarowski, the tournament management team and the NBA Players Association are actively working to finalize the aforementioned plan before launching it at a meeting next Thursday.

The format for the rest of the 2019/2020 season has not yet been revealed. The options that are being mentioned now are that the teams will only play a few more Regular Season matches then there will be a small tournament to determine the final Playoffs and then enter the Playoffs. It is also not excluded that the teams will immediately enter the Playoffs round when this season comes back.

The management team is also considering a plan to not split the paired confrontation according to the domain in the Playoffs this season. This will help ensure more fairness for the teams in the West. On the current standings, the 13th place Western Phoenix Suns are even better than the East 9th place Washington Wizards.

It is likely that only the teams that still have many chances to compete for the Playoffs this season will be able to play in this season. In addition to the 16 teams with the best results in the rankings, the remaining names that still have the opportunity to play may be Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Suns and Wizards.

In the past, the NBA management had not supported the option to split the regional match in the Playoffs. They said that if an Eastern team met a Western team in a 7-game series of Round 7 Playoffs, the teams would be too hard to move. With the Playoffs this season only taking place in one location, the above plan suddenly became very feasible.

All will have to wait until the meeting of the NBA leaders on Thursday this week to know more about the fate of this season. It is expected that after the aforementioned meeting, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will also make an official decision for the rest of this season.

Golden State Warriors and teams stand outside the NBA 2019/20 season

After the NBA has announced plans to restart with 22 teams, playing from July 31, 8 teams will be pushed out of the 2019-20 season.

Eight regular Season matches, a Playoffs round with 7 series matches like the previous seasons and 22 participating teams will be what appear in the NBA after the restart of the season on July 31.

In the presence of all 30 teams, the NBA faces a higher risk of infection. So not everyone is chosen. But if there are only 16 teams, the number of matches for the entire NBA 2019-20 season will not be enough and this is a violation of the tournament’s contract with the broadcasters as well as sponsors.

Trae Young and Stephen Curry are part of the team that has to say goodbye to NBA 2019-20

Finally, 22 teams with enough achievements including 16 teams in the Playoffs group and 5 Western teams and 1 Eastern team will come to Orlando, competing together at Walt Disney World Resort. This will leave 8 teams outside the game including as follows.

Golden State Warriors – Achievements 15-50

Cleveland Cavaliers – Achievements 19-46

Minnesota Timberwolves – Achievements 19-45

Atlanta Hawks – Achievement 20-47

Detroit Pistons – Achievement 20-46

New York Knicks – Achievements 21-45

Chicago Bulls – Achievements 22-43

Charlotte Hornets – Achievements 23-42

Prominent among the 8 teams to sit at home is probably Golden State Warriors, the collective has had 5 consecutive seasons in the NBA Finals. Unfortunately for the 2018 champion, injuries to pillars like Klay Thompson or Stephen Curry forced “Dub Nation” into the road to rebuilding the squad.

The Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves are also notable names with two stars, Trae Young and D’Angelo Russell. Unfortunately for the duo, they will have to try next season. Sharing from journalist Shams Charania, although the NBA allows 30 teams to come to Orlando to play, many will refuse to attend.

D’Angelo Russell will say goodbye to the season soon

The intensive competition will require a lot of preparation, especially among these is physical training about 3 weeks before the competition. After that, teams will have to isolate 14 days in Orlando before entering the training camp.

For teams that cannot compete in the Playoffs, it is unreasonable for them to prepare within 2 months and only play 6-8 regular Season matches. It is unclear what the plans for these 8 teams will be, but their offseason has officially started today.

What makes the NBA 2019-2020 the most memorable season in history?

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the NBA season 2019-2020 saw many other bad things happen. For the orange ball fans, this is probably the most unforgettable season in history.

The Covid-19 pandemic is still raging and sweeping, causing many sporting events across the five continents to be severely affected. The NBA is also struggling due to the Covid-19 pandemic after the case of Rudy Gobert.

As the largest basketball tournament on the planet, the NBA does not escape the storm. Cases of positive for the first new strain of Corona virus were discovered, two stars of Utah Jazz, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell.

According to the latest share of President Adam Silver in an interview with TNT’s Inside the NBA at 7:30 am on March 13 (Vietnam time), the tournament is likely to be delayed for 30 days. If after one month, the Covid-19 epidemic is still out of control, the NBA will consider continuing the suspension.

This disruption is likely to cost the tournament hundreds of millions of dollars. But that’s not the only factor that made fans comment that 2019-2020 is the most unforgettable season in NBA history.

On October 4, 2019, Houston Rockets expert president Daryl Morey posted a picture with a description of support for Hong Kong (China). In the following weeks, Chinese sponsors and partners, including television, severed ties with the Houston Rockets and NBA clubs. This not only caused Houston Rockets, but also the NBA suffered a lot, estimated to be tens of millions of dollars.

On January 1, 2020, when the whole world rejoiced to welcome the new year, the NBA welcomed the sad news again. Former association chairman, David Stern, died at age 77 of a brain haemorrhage. Over 30 years working for the NBA, Mr. Stern was the one who changed the entire history of the tournament.

It can be said that without this man, the NBA would not have been today. Under his reign, the NBA’s television revenue increased 40 times and the average salary of the players also increased from $ 250,000 to $ 5 million per year. Along with that, he founded WNBA in 1997 and has become the top basketball tournament for female players ever since.

Steve Kerr consider the 2019-20 NBA season to be over

Basketball coach Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors say that they did not imply that the 2019-20 season will not return. However, the results were not so good that led the team management to look forward to the future.

After the Golden State Warriors were swept away by a traumatic storm during the 2019-20 season, coach Steve Kerr watched helplessly as his team plummeted to the bottom in both the Western rankings and among the 30 NBA teams.

Now that the tournament organizers are working on ways to get the basketball back, the 54-year-old American captain confirms that Warriors are likely to have abandoned the 2019-20 season. At the direction of the coaching staff, every member of Golden State has entered the offseason to prepare the first preparations for the following season.

To avoid misleading, coach Steve Kerr added that he did not imply that the 2019-20 season will not return. The above instructions are circulated internally and we will strictly abide by the rules of the tournament if the matches are held again.

This season seems to be over for coach Steve Kerr and Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors currently have a record of 15 victories and 50 defeats, an achievement that would certainly make Stephen Curry and his teammates miss the Playoffs round if the tournament is held again. This result makes the decision of the Warriors leadership more sensible as they want to give up this season as soon as possible.

“We are still ready for the tournament to come back and the team will play a few matches. But with the team’s performance not so bright, it will be better if we look to the future,” said coach Steve Kerr. “Either way, our influence doesn’t mean much to the common ground this season.”

Looking at the list of US squads, James, Curry, Anthony Davis, Leonard, Damian Lillard, Durant (if recovering from injury) are almost certainly in the first team. Other prominent stars like Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Paul George, Bradley Beal need to prove they are suitable in the way of playing the coach of Popovich.

ESPN mapped out the perfect team with Curry, Harden, James, Leonard and Davis. A fan commented: “It is impossible to imagine how strong these 5 players will be together.” This squad can be seen as a measure of the standards in modern basketball, from the ability to throw three points, break into the basket, play strength and organize defense.

Besides the “witch” of Popovich, the US captain seat also has Steve Kerr, the other talented coach of the Golden Stade Warriors. The US team brought to Japan true “heroic, strong” in basketball and the collective is obscuring the rest.

Who can challenge the US team?

The NBA basketball tournament is witnessing the rise of many non-US stars. From Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Nikola Jovic, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons. However, these stars are scattered among many teams, basketball is not just a game of one person and it is difficult to challenge the US team. Comprehensive, in-depth squad.

Antetokounmpo is the reigning MVP of the NBA, possessing quality of play that makes James and Leonard afraid. The player who is dubbed the “Greek God” will carry his teammates who are not equal to him. Like Antetokoumpo, Simmons must hold many responsibilities in Australia, similar to rising star Luka Doncic in Slovenia.

Spain, the 2019 World Cup basketball champion, is the most American opponent to be wary of. Spain has Ricky Rubio and Marc Gasol, 2 stars in the NBA. A number of ACB’s players (Spanish basketball league), such as Pau Ribas, Rudy Fernandez, have good quality. The USA and Spain have each played a dramatic final at the 2008 Olympic Games.

In the last Olympics, the US team met Serbia in the final and won quite easily. After 4 years, Basketball Serbia maintains the momentum of development, continues to be among the champion candidates.

The billion-dollar tournament is about to lose $ 700 million due to Covid-19

NBA tournament has discovered many new cases of Covid-19 virus.

Kevin Durant, superstar of the Brooklyn Nets Club and a former Best Player (MVP) of the American NBA professional basketball, announced his positive for Covid-19 virus along with three other teammates. He became one of the latest virus infections of this tournament.

The NBA was suspended indefinitely after the incident of Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert infected with the Covid-19 virus. There have been new cases of infection in the tournament and it is worrying that even non-players can be contagious despite being in a quarantine state before.

Durant was absent from the NBA/20/20 season due to a serious injury and he occasionally appeared in Nets matches as spectators, sitting on the team’s bench to cheer for his team-mates. The last match Nets played was against Los Angeles Lakers on 10/3.

Durant said he is currently in good health and no signs of virus infection. “Everyone should be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We will soon overcome this pandemic” – Durant wrote for The Athletic.

Currently the Brooklyn Nets Club has not disclosed the names of three Durant teammates who were positive for the virus. Nets is urgently informing those who have contact with them to quarantine and contact health organizations for assistance.

The fact that Nets had 4 people infected with the virus and the last match was against the Lakers made the public worried that the Lakers also had the infected person, most notably the two stars LeBron James & Anthony Davis.

Currently in the NBA, there have been three players infected with the virus, including Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell of Utah Jazz and Christian Wood of Detroit Pistons. US media said if the tournament found new positive cases in the coming days, the season could be canceled and the NBA risked 700 million dollars in television rights.

American basketball is determined to win the Olympic Games (Part 1)

With 44 stars summoned for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the US basketball team can be divided into 4 squads that can beat all in the race to win the prestigious gold medal.

The Athletic used the phrase “destroy” to talk about the list of 44 stars filled by coach Gregg Popovich in the preliminary list of the Tokyo Olympic Games, men’s basketball. The brightest faces at the American Professional Basketball League (NBA) have appeared, even superstar Kevin Durant who has not recovered from injury still has a name.

The United States failed to make a decent defeat at the 2019 Basketball World Cup, but it was an all-star superstar tournament that did not appear. LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry and James Harden all agreed to return for the colors of the shirt, and the US team carried out a vengeance at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Coach Popovich will be the most headache, because all 44 players are at a high level, but he only picked the last 11.

USA has superior strength compared to the rest

With basketball, Americans are always No. 1, even far behind the rest of growth. They own the NBA tournament, with a rules that are completely different from the rules of the World Basketball Federation, from the number of minutes of each inning more (12 compared to 10), larger pitch sizes and countless rules only available at flag country. NBA is just a league of a country, but is considered by the world as the center of basketball. Every basketball player yearns to come to America.

American basketball background undergoes dozens of years of development, methodically operating at each level. From school basketball, high school, college and NBA is the last stop. That is why Americans always produce the best basketball players, both physically and skillfully. Not only do they have one or two, they have multiple squads that can beat the rest.

The dominance of the US team at the Olympic playground was shown through 15 gold medals in 18 Olympic periods. Looking to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the teachers and coaches of Popovich have many goals to win the gold medal.

LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard have the highest level of basketball nowadays

The Olympic gold medal of Tokyo is also a gift that the fans want LeBron James and his teammates to give to the legendary Kobe Bryant. This may be the last Olympic tournament LeBron James has fought in the most prestigious tournament for team level.
