Disney Bubble saved the season and saved the NBA $1.5 billion
The NBA’s Disney Bubble is not cheap, but it is effective, and it is not comparable in many ways.
“Sports Business Daily” John Lombardo (John Lombardo) reported that by playing in a closed and highly monitored environment, the league saved $ 1.5 billion in revenue.
Creating a game and living facility for 22 teams was not easy, but the NBA’s $180 million investment paid off, extending the season and crowning the championship, and no player signed COVID-19 in the bubble.
The daily price tag of $1.8 million is dedicated to the Disney Resort and ESPN Stadium World, providing athletes with private rooms, entertainment venues, dining and continuous health monitoring in a university campus-like environment, minus some extracurricular activities.
In the case of the cancellation of the game, the team still suffered a huge blow. The fans did not participate in the game and lost about $1.9 million per home game.
The financial loss is expected to affect the salary cap for the 2020-21 season, which may not start until January.
Commissioner Adam Silver (Adam Silver) insisted that the team be allowed to play on their home court and serve the fans next season.
Although the NBA’s ratings have declined, when the team is off the court in late December or January, players and fans will definitely make a lot of publicity for returning to normal games.
For the first time since the 2019 Finals, the Golden State Warriors will have the Splash Brothers return. The Nets will let Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant sit on the floor together, and rumors of a deal involving some of the league’s top stars may Contenders for the upcoming season will bring many surprises and new changes.
