Commissioner Adam Silver Confident Season Will be Pulled Off Safely

As the NBA’s regular season is set to kick off tonight, Commissioner Adam Silver is confident that the league will do all it can to pull off the season safely.

Yes, there will be one or two players who will come out and say “we shouldn’t have played”, but all in all, the NBA feels ready.

“I think we are prepared for isolated cases; in fact, based on what we’ve seen in the preseason, based on watching other leagues operating outside a bubble, unfortunately, it seems somewhat inevitable,” Silver said. “We’re prepared for all contingencies… We do anticipate that there will be bumps in the road along the way.”

Unlike other seasons, this one is slated to be just 72 games.

Speaking on the eve of the new season, Silver also said that the league plans to continue to do its part in spreading the message of “Black Lives Matter” while helping in the community during these tough times.

 

“I think there’s also been in a new awakening among the players in the league as to the impact they can have when they use the platforms they have to speak out on issues that are important to them,” Silver said. “So, I think it’s a combination of the collective action that the league will be taking together with its players and coaches, and on top of that players realizing the enormous reach they have with their voices.”

Count on the NBA to make sure things go over smoothly!
