These are very strange times for all of us. And the same can certainly be said of sports fans. We often are spoiled for choice by how many games are on TV, turning our nose up at anything that is below our standards, in most cases. Now that there is literally almost nothing to watch, that attitude is seen as silly and something we’ll wish to change when sports do return as we know them.
At any rate, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made quite the splash on Wednesday when he stated that he and the league were looking at a way to provide the market with a ‘diversionary’ or a charity game to help provide a bit of entertainment in this time. He didn’t say when it would be, and he also made it very clear that he wasn’t sure how they would take the necessary precautions to do it, but he did lay it out on the table. Might we see an All-Star Game 2.0 with this, or something else? We shall see, but we hope that it at least gets some measure of consideration.
