That's one way to settle a lawsuit.

Karl Anthony Towns Mom has coronavirus and is currently in a medically induced coma on a respirator. It doesn't sound good according to him in this video. Really sad.

NBA, players discuss withholding pay if regular-season games canceled.

Not sure if this will actually amount to anything. The Bulls as an organization has been a dumpster fire for years, and really went nowhere under the Paxson regime. Plus, John Paxson supposedly gets to stay on in some "advisory roles" after driving them into the ground.

The only real positive that might come out of this is that they might finally get rid of that clown Jim Boylen and head bobo Gar Forman.

If they have a season they should start the playoffs ASAP since more than half of the season has been played and have each playoff series best of five

They would all be out of shape and out of sync. Would be a miserable Playoff first round. They would have to play 5-10 games first.

All photoshop, but still pretty funny:

Re: 2019-2020 NBA Regular Season Thread

I know they have to limit close contact, but if they just wanted to stay under the 10 people in a crowd limit... this would've been the year to do an NBA Jam type of tournament. Two to three players from each team in a year when a ton of teams have two superstars.

The other stupid thought I had was Golden State having an off year the one year that doesn't finish, then going right back to the Finals next year. I mean they are the worst team in the league right now.

The Horse challenge is now official. I know you all will be watching.

https://tvline.com/2020/04/09/espn-nba-horse-challenge/

ESPN will present the four quarterfinal games on Sunday, April 12 at 7/6c, while the semifinals and the championship game will air on Thursday, April 16, beginning at 9 pm. ESPN NBA commentator Mark Jones will serve as the official host.

Event sponsor State Farm will donate more than $200,000 on behalf of the participants to charities focused on coronavirus response efforts — adding to the more than $74 million that has thus far been contributed by the NBA Family to support coronavirus relief efforts.

That remains to be seen. Mainly, because this move was money motivated. For years, the Bulls have remained one of the highest attended NBA team (either No. 1 or No. 2 for the past ten years), living off of the glory of the 90's dynasty. People just kept showing up to watch a horrific product on the court that was going nowhere. However, for the first time in over a decade, the Bulls finally saw a precipitous drop in ticket sales and attendance. So this shake up was just a reactionary move to that.

The Bulls ownership were perfectly content to stay mired in mediocrity for the longest time while the fans continue to walk through the turnstiles. So I'm gonna take a wait and see attitude to see if they are serious about turning things around.

Horse is the most boring version of basketball ever invented. I'm not that hard up for entertainment.

I thought I would be up for watching HORSE, but the choppy video makes it a hard pass.

This HORSE competition looks like shit on TV. Shaky cell phone cam with horrible audio.

Right now it’s Paul Pierce vs. Zach LaVine. It’s pretty unwatchable. I know people are dying for sports, but this not entertaining.

The best part: In order to make sure that everybody gets to watch this pile of garbage "competition", they showed it twice.
