NBA Suspends Rest of Season Over Coronavirus Fears

Any NBA fans? Not me, so I could care less. This happened right after it was announced that the NCAA March Madness Tournament won't be played in front of fans. Only essential staff and "limited family attendance" will be permitted at any of the March Madness games, which sucks for the players and their fans.


The NBA has suspended the rest of the season due to the coronavirus outbreak. The league says they “will use hiatus to determine next steps moving.” ADVERTISING This is a breaking story.

Call me crazy but I don’t see the NBA and others throwing away revenue like this over nothing.

So here is my conspiracy theory...

A coordinated effort between China and the media hype this virus up to cause a lemming like freak out with the express goal of crashing the economy during an election year so Trump is not re-elected.

We know China doesn't like Trump because of his America First approach. We also know the leftist media is too stupid to know they are being used.

Joe Biden is installed as President. We need to pay very close attention to who he picks for VP.

Biden won't last one year. He is going to step down over mental / health issues and the VP who was the real candidate all along will step in.

You'd think anyway, still hearing a lot of "this is a conspiracy against Trump"

Saw the clown that got it was from Utah and not long ago was making a point to touch all the reporters stuff trying to say there is nothing to fear, few days later he has it and now the season is post poned.

TDS is a hellavu drug.

They must have been given marching orders from their Chinese overlords.

I wonder how much China is paying the NBA for this.

We saw what happened over the summer when NBA players criticized the Chinese crackdown on Hong Kong...

Why suspend the whole season. Why not televise the games instead.

All the players can wear masks.

I think some of these organizations are seeing free $$$ from the government being handed over.

May want to follow the money tree.

This entire family of viruses are notorious never-Trumpers. I’ve even heard some of them drove illegal aliens to the polls to vote for Hillary.

LeBron James said he wouldn't play without fans. How many of the others followed his lead? If the players were going to revolt, then maybe this is the result. Just cancel it and blame the virus instead of letting everyone know the players won't play.

Last time players threw a fit like that in a sport, it hurt the sport's reputation.

Sorry, but by "take it seriously" do you mean either start panicking and/or cowering in the fetal position in fear incapable of doing or thinking anything except what someone in authority tells me?

Sorry, I am capable of thinking and observing things and doing my own research.

Yes, this is a serious disease, but not for the reasons most of your are freaking out over and certainly not for the reasons some of these actions are being taken for.
