Shiiiiit this is one step closer to what seems to be a permanent move. I understand it, don't get me wrong, but I hate it. I love the NBA Finals in June. I love the NBA Draft at the end of June. I love starting the season in October. I get that they aren't trying to compete with football and this is something that has been discussed for a few years now. I just hate it.
What the hell happens to college hoops from here. They aren't going to change their schedule. It's always going to be that November start with March Madness. They aren't going to go to a May Madness or whatever. So if the NBA season starts in December and ends in let's say August, what happens with everyone declaring? Are they pushing the Draft to August? Are they going to go MLB style and do a mid-season draft but players aren't eligible until the next season? That has to be ironed out and quite frankly I don't know how it works.
Obviously right now the whole thing is the NBA trying to finish this season. They are doing everything possible to not cancel the rest of it and they are exploring every option. This shows that they are likely going to finish it somehow, someway. Why else postpone the lottery if that's the case? They are going to go until the last possible second before cancelling, which is why they are postponing it right now.
Either way, here we are on a Friday night thinking of the NBA Draft. The more things change, the more the stay the same or some shit.
