4 big guesses about the second half of the NBA
In early March, the NBA League issued its first memo to teams, limiting the way players interact with fans.On March 12, the Jazz player Gobert confirmed infection with new crown pneumonia, and the NBA announced its suspension.As of now, at least 10 NBA players have become confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia, of which Wood, Mitchell, Gobert, Smart and others have recovered.  The impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic on the 2019-2020 NBA season, the NBA is still shutting down indefinitely.Will this season be cancelled?When can I rematch?Finish the rest of the season in some form?The above are the concerns of NBA teams, players, fans and related practitioners. This fact is widely disputed. Various schemes have been proposed, and the NBA league rankings have also stated. “We are exploring all schemes that can guarantee safety and lower the rematch.Everything is possible.”It is currently not an option to cancel the game. Cancellation on April 2nd, the Croatian top basketball league announced the cancellation of the remaining games of the season. Following the championship, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Lithuania, South Korea and other countries canceled their professional basketball leagues, they directly canceled this due to the epidemic.The list of professional leagues this season continues to grow.Will the NBA be the next one?I am afraid no one can easily make such a decision.  Since the NBA announced the shutdown on March 12, the epidemic in the United States has continued to deteriorate, and it has quickly become the country with the largest number of new cases of new pneumonia in the world. However, no matter whether it is the official of the league, the team owner, the players of each team, and the media reporters, there are almost noTreat season cancellation as an alternative.  When can the six-month rematch be completed? The NBA announced the suspension of the game at the beginning of the NBA announcement. The NBA president once publicly announced on the TV station that the NBA will be interrupted for at least 30 days this season. “Even if we suspend the game for a month or a half, we can restart the season., The finals may be expected to play in July.”” When the public health department officials permit, the season will resume.”This is the official response of the NBA in late March to when the rematch will begin. At that time, the league was still optimistic about resuming this season as soon as possible.However, after the epidemic situation in the US territories turned sharply, the public health department was obviously overwhelmed, and the NBA league had to start considering various rematch options.  Before the NBA lockout, the 2019-2020 season NBA has already carried out about 65 rounds. The regular season games played by each team are between 63 and 67 games. According to the schedule of the game, it will take 35 days to finish the rest.Regular season.In the playoffs, the span is about two months.  This means that for the NBA to complete the season in a complete format, it takes at least 3 months or so.At this time, even if the Tokyo Olympics has been declared over, there is no conflict between the national players and the US men ‘s basketball training. If the rematch can be played on behalf of each team at any time, how can it be free for about 3 months, and try not to affect 2020In the -2021 season, the NBA league and executives of various teams face huge challenges.  According to US media reports, if you want to finish this season in full form without affecting the preseason, regular season and other schedules for next season, the loosest deadline for the NBA Finals this season is early September, “No one wants to start next season.Previously, the championship this season never happened.”Means that the NBA must resume the game in June to ensure a complete and complete schedule.  Where to play and how to play in the “Casino” empty game is best and even the NBA successful rematch. For the safety of players and related staff, the empty game has already been a mutual consensus.At the beginning of the NBA lockout, because the NBA Development League announced the cancellation of this season, the league is already collecting development venues and training facilities. The American media believes that this conveys a signal that only under the replacement of NBA empty games, the development leagueWill be an alternative.  Of course, the continuous deterioration of the epidemic situation may cause empty games to become insufficient conditions for the NBA rematch. Concentrating the teams to play in one place has gradually become the NBA’s favorite program.Simply from this point, the American media believes that the CBA rematch plan provides a good idea for the NBA.  It is understood that the China Basketball Association and CBA jointly proposed to hold tournament-based leagues in Dongguan and Qingdao. 20 CBA teams went to Dongguan and Qingdao in batches for a single round of competition. The game was conducted in an empty field, butlive.Although this plan has not been approved by superiors at present, it is considered to be the next repeating plan with the least risk.  ”Concentrate all teams in a controlled environment to replay, let players live, eat, train and play in one place, everything is under reliable protection.”The US media believes that this scheme is feasible and relatively safe. If the league restarts, the NBA league may choose Las Vegas as the venue.  According to reports, when discussing potential game cities within the NBA, Las Vegas, Orlando, Atlantic City, and Louisville all become alternatives, but at most it can only be Las Vegas.  In addition to the relatively mild local epidemic situation, Las Vegas has enough hotels, fitness facilities, training and game venues to meet the needs of various teams. Las Vegas has served as an NBA All-Star and has been in recent years.Has been hosting the NBA Summer League, the above factors have made “Casino” the best solution for the empty game after the rematch.  NBA officials have stated that this lockout may lead to changes in the NBA calendar since then, and the opener of each season is extended from around November to around Christmas.This also reflects the determination of the league and the teams for the rematch from the side. Considering the existing epidemic in the United States, if the NBA finally determines not to cancel this season, the remaining schedule and the playoffs will be a high probability event.  The NBA regular season has a total of 82 rounds, and the remaining games of each NBA team range from 15 to 19 games.For the Bucks, Lakers, Raptors and other strong teams that locked early in the playoffs, they naturally only focused on how to play in the playoffs, but for some teams that are on the edge of the playoffs, the remaining regular season scheduleWhether there will be changes is also crucial.  Taking the Western Division as an example, from the 8th to the 12th in the West, the Grizzlies, Trail Blazers, Pelicans, Kings, Spurs and other five teams have the opportunity to compete for a playoff spot.Whether this season’s regular season cancels directly to play in the playoffs, or whether to complete 82 or 70 rounds and other unified games, will affect the fate of the above teams.Therefore, how to arrange the remaining regular season schedule while ensuring fairness is one of the important considerations for the NBA league.  The US media generally believe that because most players cannot guarantee normal training during the lockout period, playing the playoffs directly after the rematch will affect the splendor of the game.Each team believes that a certain number of regular season games are needed to match the indicators and tactics. Therefore, after playing 82 regular season games or a unified game, it is more popular among the teams.  How to play in the playoffs, the extent of the differences between the respective.The side that supports the playoffs’ continuation of 7 wins and 4 wins is more focused on the game itself.The reason why the NBA playoffs repeatedly appear in the classic series is inseparable from the gimmick of the “Snatch Seven”. Seven games give the entire series unlimited possibilities, the ups and downs of the plot and the blood of the “Seven Seven”.Zhang is considered the essence of the playoffs.  However, considering the reality of the epidemic, the voices supporting the restructuring of the NBA playoffs have the upper hand.Historical data shows that it was not until 2003 that the NBA playoffs began to implement a complete 7-game 4-win system. In the long period before this, the first round of the Eastern and Western matchups implemented a 5-game 3-win system, even inIn the first few decades of the establishment of the NBA, only the finals were implemented with 7 wins and 4 wins.  Therefore, there should not be too much distortion and transformation in the return to the 5 wins 3 wins or even 3 wins 2 wins, and some people have proposed that the NBA can defeat the NCAA “Crazy March” game system and adopt a fixed victory.The single defeat elimination system makes this special season more dramatic this year.
