Supposedly guys that already had it and supposedly recover just keep testing positive... They are going to try antibody tests for these guys I guess.


It is weird, there is definitely some strange stuff where sometimes the virus can either re-appear or you can get re-infected. Not knowing which or what could derail this.

Hey this is pretty good!
The NBA has done a real good job with the broadcast of the games. I can't say I missed anything from a normal broadcast. The game seems to move quicker too. I think the NBA will gain more fans during the period. I can't say that MLB will do the same, the couple games I watched were super boring.

That Lakers-Clippers game was absolutely banging. SO much for worrying the players couldn't summon competitive fire in these weird circumstances and without a crowd. You could tell how much Lebron was recharged by the layoff by the way he picked his D up in the 4th quarter. Still think Clippers are more talented but Lakers may take it all with Lebron fired up and with more rest over the past year and half than his entire past career put together.

Leonard isn't fun to watch for me. All I can say is, this guy is effective. Sure gets a lot of benefit of the doubt swiping down on the ball.

Watching this product in Orlando and the scenario in general just makes me appreciate 6/19/16 so much more...

I'm glad to have some hoops back, live competition, squeaking sneakers, all of it. Even the virtual fans are ok with me for now, all things considered.

I was skeptical at first, but they went about this the right way and have succeeded thus far. It's been fun to watch and the games feel much more intimate and I feel more connected to the players.

This will be fascinating when we are watching crucial NBA finals moments.

Jesus Christ, Harden 18-21 free throws in a game his team wins by 4 points in overtime, 49 points on 20 shots, when is this nightmare going to end...
He was incredible in that game and this is the takeaway?

Do we also hate Luka for scoring 40 points on 20 shots last night while going 18-19 from the line?

I'll take watching Luka be crafty as fuck and bust out that old man at the Y game over Harden's shitshow of throwing himself into people any day of the week.

Cannot stand watching Harden's game. It looks and feels so manufactured.
