The start of the new NBA season remains in the air, as there is still no agreement between the players and the league.
According to the American press, the players clarify that the first jambol for the new season should take place in January, with the NBA pushing for the start of the season in mid-December and more specifically, on the 22nd of the month.
A regular season of 72 matches is planned for the next season, in order for the playoffs to be completed before the Tokyo Olympics.
At the same time, NBA officials are called upon to manage the financial losses that exist from the coronavirus pandemic.
What is certain is that the new season will start without the presence of fans on the stands, at the same time that the financial staff of the league is talking about a loss that can reach up to 1 billion dollars if the season finally starts in January!
NBA officials hope that the pandemic will subside and that next spring the fans will be able to return to the stands, so that there will be more income for the teams.
