Shaquille O’Neal Calls For The NBA Season To Be Cancelled

Shaquille O’Neal: NBA should ‘scrap the season,’ not return from coronavirus hiatus (report)

And, he said, trying to play a game in an empty area would be extremely hard. We're going to play in an arena with just us, trainers, the camera guys and the media guys.

The NBA should now be right in them middle of the 2020 Playoffs, but the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has put that and the remainder of the regular season in jeopardy. And while execs of the organization are looking at the possible resumption of the season, Shaquille O'Neal thinks it is best just to scrap it entirely.

Amid reports that some National Basketball Association executives and agents wanted the rest of the season to be canceled, LeBron James refuted these claims on Twitter, saying the season should restart "as soon as it's safe".

NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal believes winning the Larry O'Brien trophy won't mean as much this year due to the world's troubling state because of the coronavirus pandemic. What if a team that isn't really in the mix of all things "Suddenly he wins with a new playoff format?" And, if play were to resume, would it take place in an entirely localized area, free of spectators?

"I understand how players are feeling".

"They're not going to get the respect".

O'Neal further highlighted the importance of the safety of the fans and players and how it could be compromised when the season reopening is rushed. "I really do. But any team that gets it done this year, there's going to be an asterisk on that championship", Shaq added. "Come back next year".

The NBA can terminate the CBA under the Force Majeure Event provision for the period starting March 11 when the 2019-20 season was suspended. After the game, you've despite everything got the opportunity to return home.

One of the ideas to resume play involves holding games with no fans and limited personnel present - whether the games are played in a singular location or not. What if a person gets sick and no one is there? "The questions have now evolved from, 'Are we going to play again?' to, 'If we play, what are the risks going to look like?'" "All it takes is one". "At that point we start from zero once more".
