The NBA Starting on Dec. 22

The NBA having a short season and in the bubble has been what people did not expect for the NBA. This is because the Bubble did not have any fans and no one could go into the bubble. Also the NBA getting cut off in March was a very big disadvantage because there weren’t the same amount of games. Also some fans couldn’t get to watch their favorite team play. This is because there were eight teams that did not go to the NBA bubble. The eight teams were:
Chicago Bulls
Atlanta hawks
Golden State Warriors
New York Knicks
Minnesota Timberwolves
Charlotte Hornets
Cleveland Cavaliers
Detroit Pistons
These teams were not invited to the NBA Bubble because they did not have the required records needed. Which meant that they poorly for example the Golden State Warriors have had the worst record in the NBA this season. This is because of the rebuild they did on the team trading many players and consisting of only three good players, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Then the rest of the team were rookies. On the other hand, the other conference had the Cleveland Cavaliers having the worst record in that conference. This led to those teams to not be invited to the Bubble.
Last week the NBA commission approved Dec. 22 as the starting date for the 2020-2021 NBA season and also played a 71-game regular season instead of 82-game regular season. This was the day every NBA fan was waiting for and also many teams and franchises have been waiting for this moment. There have been there advantages and disadvantages for the season to start on Dec. 22. Some advantages are that teams are starting the season so they are starting to make money, every player is going to go back into rhythm while playing games, and the eight teams that did not have the chance to play in the bubble will play. On the other hand, the disadvantages are very significant as well because many players did not have the off-season they needed to rest up. For example the teams that did not go to the bubble had a 258 day off-season and the Los Angeles Lakers & The Miami Heat have a 71 day off-season because they were the last teams standing.
This has been great news for the basketball community. We only have to wait for the season to start so we see who is the new champion. Maybe the Lakers go on a double championship? Maybe this time the Miami Heat win? Or maybe one of the best dynasties, the warriors win?
