We might not be far off from the NCAA tournament just being outright cancelled. Hope not, but that is the direction we are headed.

Talk about messing with Karma. Just the other day Gobert definently touched every microphone in a press conference in an effort to show the fear of the virus is just paranoia. Then he gets it.

Now I just see the NBA headline. I doubt see the NCAA one any more. I swear I saw it 15 minutes ago.

I feel bad for all of the people who work in industries related to NBA, NCAA, transportation, etc. They are going to be out of work.

On the other hand, those in the healthcare business and scientists are going to have their work cut out for them...

Yes, every year Italy's hospitals are completely filled to the brim. Every year China has to build a dozen emergency hospitals to handle the sudden influx of patients who can't breathe.

You want Kleenex not charmin. It isn’t the kind of sick for charmin. I can’t believe the little amount anyone knows about this. People need to start getting informed so you know what to look for

I would say the decision would be to postpone till April 10ish, then make the call from there.

Going out on top is good though.

I agree that with all the hype going on that this tournament isn't happening as scheduled.

I just posted the same thing in another thread but here’s how I see it.

The NBA was all set on playing without crowds a few hours earlier but once a player got it the whole dynamic changed. So far the reason NBA is suspended is because they have to quarantine all Rudy’s teammates and all the teams they have recently played. So the season couldn’t keep going with those teams just not playing. So unless college players start getting the virus they will probably play TV games. They want to play them I’m sure, but you can’t have guys playing against each other getting other guys sick.
