Life, safety and games in the NBA's Disney World bubble

Life, safety and games in the NBA's Disney World bubble

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 19, 2020 - 1:10:23

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina dig into the NBA's health and safety protocol for the upcoming season at Disney World. Is this a good plan? How will games be played and which hotels will house the players? Will the players buy in? What are some of the quirks fans should watch for once play resumes? From there, Ben and Michael shift gears to take questions from the Open Floor Globe. What can the NBA do to increase its number of African-American owners? What happens in the empty arenas next year if NBA games can't be played with fans? Could the NBA players ever break off to form their own league? Should fans get to pick their audio broadcasts -- fake noise or real noise -- during the Orlando bubble? How can the broadcasts incorporate activist messages?
