Adrian Wojnarowski: Everything points to the return of the NBA to Disney World
The chances of the NBA season in Orlando resuming at Disney World are increasing. The location has already been reported to be a clear leader to host the rest of the season. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA insider from ESPN, the emerging information suggests that Disney World will actually be the place where games will take place.
“Everything points to a return of the NBA this season to a single location in Orlando at Disney World,” said Wojnarowski on ESPN’s Get Up. “The teams expect the league to call their players back next week. There will be a two-week quarantine in the markets. Some teams may go directly to Disney to start training or somewhere in between. But the league has started to go beyond just plans to return for testing and health safety. But this week really think about what this format will look like. “
Another important issue is the format of the resumed season. The NBA is focusing on this topic this week. Several alternatives are considered per Wojnarowski. “Well, they’re still considering a number of variations, Greeny, wherever all 30 teams are brought back just to get the playoff teams back in there.” Less than 30 but more than 16 of the playoff teams. How many teams bring them back affects the format they will have.
Will they just play regular seasonal games with all 30 teams and then go into the playoffs, playing as many as possible that are still on the schedule? Will they go to a play-in tournament and maybe have teams fighting for the 7th and 8th seeds until the 9th and 10th seeds. Maybe they go to the 12th seed. They also talked about a pool game to get the last seeds of the Eastern and Western Conference Group. “
The format must be agreed between the league office and the National Basketball Players Association.
