Rudy Gobert from Jazz can't "feel anything" because of the coronavirus

Adam Silver

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's glass is half full. "Maybe not with fans, but we're playing games".

In an interview with WFAA in Dallas, Cuban gave his perspective on a potential return date for the National Basketball Association, and if he's right, the National Basketball Association could be back in our lives sooner than expected.

"The behavior of people and journalists has been disgusting", said the 27-year old Fournier said on a L'Equipe interview when the announcement of Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers were made that they have players and staff who tested positive to the virus. The shutdown is now expected to last longer, with the league also banning practices and shutting down facilities.

The quote might not fully apply to someone like Cuban because I wouldn't necessarily say he's "lying" at all, but rather being hopeful.

If the season does start back up, Silver mentioned different options of how it would look because of the lengthy delay. "Nothing is off the table".

The government will "be strict and inflexible when dealing with the way older people are treated", she said. It has emerged that COVID-19 victims have reportedly been found living with loved ones who are still alive.

Since then, four more players were identified to be infected by COVID-19 and a bunch of others from different teams as they opted to protect the players' and personnel's identity to the public. "I think we've led the way and hopefully we'll lead the way out of this". The NBA commissioner came up with three possible ideas - options one and two starting the season over, with or without fans, and option three is to take groups of players an play for a big event such as a fundraiser. But Cuban remains optimistic that the world might be closer to a solution than previously anticipated.

"I think that's the first step and I think that's going to happen a little bit faster than we originally expected".

For one thing, it could mean players won't get paid beyond their April 1 paycheck, which the league has confirmed will be distributed to players it is due, reports NBC Sports. "You know, people want something to cheer for, people want something to rally around, people want something to be excited about".
