    Default NBA informs teams 2020-21 season won't begin before Christmas Day, 2020 NBA Draft set for Nov. 18, per reports

    The NBA's experiment inside the Orlando bubble has gone off, largely, without a hitch. The league has gone months without a positive COVID-19 test, and we've reached the latter stages of the postseason with no immediate obstacles standing between the remaining teams and finishing the season. Now, the league has to figure out how what's going to happen next season.

    The timeline is becoming more clear as the NBA has reportedly informed the Board of Governors that the 2020-21 season won't begin earlier than Dec. 25, according to Shams Charania. These changes echo previous concerns about the condensed offseason schedule. Players who last deep into the postseason in the bubble would need more time to recover for next season, while the league needs more time to assess its financial situation for the coming seasons in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Will anyone miss them? I never watch the NBA until April or May.

    If baseball can cut 60% of their regular season, so can basketball.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    Wasn't the NBA regular season much shorter this year also?

    No. It was scheduled to be lengthened by two weeks to limit back to backs, especially road back to backs, but still 82 games. Originally it was set for mid-October to April. Got cut off in March, and I believe playoff teams ended up playing about 75 games.
