Exclude the return of NBA before May

          Excluding the return of competitions in American                                      basketball before the month of May


After hoping the week before last for the League to return in mid-May, Dallas Mavericks Marek Coben, the owner of the ASBN sports network, acknowledged Wednesday that "I have no idea" about when to return.

One thing is certain, Silver is waiting for the green light from the health authorities, which is an issue whose history cannot be predicted, and this is what Monday indicated in an interview that was reported directly to the League’s account on Twitter, revealing, “What I said to my group last week is that we must Accept that we will not be in a position to make any decisions, at least in April. "

"I don't think that necessarily means that we will be able to do that on May 1," he added.

The Basketball League was the first professional championship in the United States to decide to suspend the season on March 11, as a result of Utah jazz French player Rudi Goubert being infected with the "Covid-19" virus.

The regular season was supposed to end on April 15th, with the playoff exclusion roles beginning on the 18th of the year until the final round in June.

As uncertainty persists regarding the outbreak of the virus and when it can be contained, Silver assured that he has not made any decision as to whether he will try to complete the regular season or go straight to the knockout roles.

Silver stressed that the association had not taken any decision regarding scenarios such as establishing exclusion roles in a one-stop-shop system, an option that was revealed on Thursday by the website of "Sports Illustrated" magazine, noting that officials are studying the possibility of organizing the entire exclusion roles in Las Vegas.

No compromise on public safety

In his interview Monday, Silver said, "I do not want to leave the impression that we are not doing everything we can to resume under the appropriate circumstances," noting that once the league resumes, there will be several options on the table.

"I will say, when I look at (the option to resume the league in the summer), there is a point where we start to influence the next season," whose launch will be delayed as a result of this, he added.

He stated that the League League is still considering resuming play without an audience, whether in the teams' courts, in training facilities or in exclusionary roles on a tournament system in one place.

In response to the "Sports Illustrated" report regarding Las Vegas choosing to host the "Playoff" match, Silver said, "There was a lot of speculation about the different cities and places that could host the (Playoff) session. We are currently listening," revealing Communicate with several parties interested in playing the "Play Off" in their cities.

Silver also touched on the collective contact he had with a number of other patrol commissioners, with US President Donald Trump, who expressed his confidence on Saturday that sports would return, but he declined to set a timetable for this return.

Although the number of "Covid-19" infections in the United States has become the largest in the world, the US President was optimistic Saturday in his daily press conference from the White House, saying "I want the fans to return to the stadiums ... when we are ready. Once we are Able, of course. I cannot tell you the date but I think it will be sooner rather than later. "

"All of the (Trump's) patrols share this view, and we very much want us to be part of the economic restart movement, but of course this cannot be achieved in a way that would endanger safety," Silver said.
Like other sporting events around the world, the return of the league is linked to the interruption of the spread of the "Covid-19" virus in North America.
