    I agree, the whole slate is going to be a wash. Just have Silver announce that all games are cancelled.

    In my opinion, the NBA is trying to kill off whatever fans are actually still watching the sport.

    The issues at hand are infinitely more important than basketball. I totally get and support players and the league not wanting to conduct business as usual, but there has to be a more transparent and cohesive way to go about it than holing up in the locker room 5 minutes before tip like it’s the Alamo.

    Well it sucks but I support them and their decision!

  • yisman

    Blazers should just forfeit and say it’s a protest. they know they’re not winning anyway

  • blackchi

    Other teams will follow. If lots of players decide to leave the bubble then season will be cancelled as well probably.

    Yeah I’m all for delaying the rest of the series until Dame, Collins and Hood are 100% and LeBron is pushing 40.

    I mean if the Orlando Magic took the floor. They should win the game right?

    And these issues are made better by players leaving the stage that gave them their voice then? I’m just asking.

    MOD NOTE

    I understand that this is relative to today’s slate, but let’s just try and stay calm here, and not stray far off into ones social ideologies and opinions on what’s right or wrong here of the players.

    We don’t need a 3rd consecutive day with a blow up in here.

    Be respectful, please.

    100% agreed. I have no issues with players boycotting, but this decision needs to be made in advance of tip. I am sure FD and DK upper management is communicating about this issue with NBA HQ.

    I have no issue with there protest, my biggest issue is why come in the first place?

    IMO they should, yes.

  • dominicanpapi

    I mean if the Bucks sit this one out, I don’t see how the other 4 teams play either. The optics will look terrible. You could make the argument there shouldn’t even be a Bubble but it’s not related to DFS so I’ll just stay quiet about it. We’re lucky we got this far.

    Be like
    “Bucks go home, Magic advance.”
    Win the championship by showing up

  • telestraightshooter

    protests via destruction….
    …………………………………. of my LU’s – LoL

    Cancel the season, whatever, burn it all down man.

    On the whole, America really does not care if the outraged souls (justified or otherwise) sit it out.

    I care, but i’m exceptional. In public opinion it’s a net loss to the NBA.

    Heck yes they should. WIN!

  • realphipps

    Cavs were progressive. They didn’t even show up to Orlando… Because they cared.

    Yep. A handful of guys like Giannis protested one day and then back to work. Just stay home if you want to act like this. They’re gonna feel real oppressed when they ain’t getting a paycheck anymore.

    SMH just when I won going to win the big price….

    because it never occurred to them another instance of this would happen while they are in the bubble

    Yup, we are possibly looking at the whole slate being cancelled, which is fine by me.

    I suspect all the games won’t be played.
