Normally the NBA season starts in mid October. Here we are at the end of October but no basketball games. When will the season start?
Since Covid – 19 a lot of things like basketball have been shut down. Because of Covid, The NBA shut down for a couple of months and did not come back until July 30. No fans were allowed in to see the games. So they watched it from home.
By the time the 2019-2020 Championship series was over the 2020-2021 season would normally have started. But the NBA has not settled on a start date for the 2020-2021 season. There are many ideas when it should start like Christmas or sometime in January.
If they start right now then the two teams who went to the championship (L.A Lakers and Miami Heat) would still be worn out from playing much longer than the rest of the league and they would be coming back after a couple of weeks if we started right away.
One thing that they also have to remember is that the Olympics is this summer and if they chose to wait then it will cut into the next season 2021-2022 so they also have to think about the schedule.
