The NBA Is Back!

The NBA Is Back!

The NBA is back once again! Preseason started last Friday, and regular season games start on Tuesday the 22nd, and many are on Christmas! This season will be very unique. Teams are back in their team facilities and arenas and no more bubble! The Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers last played in September and that’s less than 2 months of an offseason! Other teams saw their seasons resume in July, then end in August or September. Then other teams that haven’t played since the beginning of March. That’s 9 months! The NBA has pretty strict rules for COVID. Players and coaches will be tested for coronavirus daily around the league. The NBA wasn’t allowing team dinners to take place until last Friday, or the start of Phase 4 in the league’s five-phase plan for health and safety. James Harden, one of the superstars in the NBA is still wanting to sign with somebody after requesting a trade! There are many rookies that will be exciting to watch! Like LaMelo Ball, Cole Anthony, Isaac Okoro, Anthony Edwards, James Wiseman, and more! The Lakers are most likely to repeat their trip to the finals, but you never know with the NBA. This will be a very unique season!
