Among all the discussions nowadays of the authorities are relating to the end of basketball league this year due to the health of people in Covid 19 days, Shaquille O’Neal has brought in a new idea about it.
It’s been about two months since the leadership of National Basketball Association( NBA) informed that they decided to postponed the 2019-20 season until further notice when Rudy Gobert had positive test for Covid 19. At that moment, despite of feeling disappointed, all players of NBA as well as their fans hoped that coronavirus might be kept under control and everything will be in good condition. However, as you can see, all nations around the world have to take measures to do against this virus. Especially in America right now, there are about more than 2 million cases due to the rapid spread of the virus which hinders NBA from holding a basketball season now.
NBA are considering whether they should hold the other part of 2019-20 season which will take place in one or two fixed place. There will be no full of crowd and the staffs who will support for players will be limited. They also think over about the Regular Season should be held or not.
NBA is trying their best to find a proper plan for the current condition. However, a legend of the season Shaquille believe that everything should be stopped. In a recent interview with USA Today, Shaquille O’Neal thought that the comeback of this season will have no meaning. Even if they become the champion, their reputation also be affected. “ I absolutely think that this 2019-20 season should be cancelled forever. Players should go home to relax and protect them from being affected by Covid 19. Next year, they will comeback in a good condition. Why don’t we hold this season in the year 2021 instead of hastening the process to Playoffs?. I understand the expectations of all players for the season, but they will not be treated as a real champion if the match takes place in 2020. The best thing they should do now is following the measures of governments to get through this pandemic.”
After all, the health as well as the safe of players, coaches and thousand of staffs are the most important. Leadership of NBA should think about the advice of Shaquille because it seems to be the more possible method in comparison to the others.
