Time to Schein: Kyrie Irving wants the players to sit out for the remainder of the season NBA

    Depuis plusieurs jours, l'idée que certains joueurs de la NBA serait ignorer la saison de retour à Disney World à Orlando est passé d'une possibilité à une fatalité. Kyrie Irving et Avery Bradley luttent pour annuler la saison, afin de priver les fans d'une distraction de la justice sociale, les problèmes que connaissait le pays. Danny Green, les Lakers' un représentant syndical, a revendiqué l'hébergement à l'hôtel sont les plus grandes préoccupations pour les joueurs. Positif coronavirus tests de continuer à pic dans le centre de la Floride. 

NBA commissioner Adam Silver is aware of these concerns. On an interview with Mike Greenberg on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” he had a simple message: not everyone is going to come, and that is OK. The NBA has reached an agreement with the players by saying that the decision not to play in Orlando will not be considered a breach of contract.

“I can only say, it may not be for everyone. It will be a huge sacrifice in the name of these players and to all the participants, coaches, referees. Listen, this is not an ideal situation. We are trying to find a way of our own normal in the middle of a pandemic, in the middle of essentially a recession or even worse, with 40 million unemployed people. And now, with huge social unrest in the country. As we work through these issues, I can understand how some players may feel that this is not for them. And as you said, it could be for a multitude of reasons, it may be for family reasons, it may be for health reasons that they have, or it may be because they feel, as some players have said very recently, that their time is better spent elsewhere. Once again, we are dealing with a player of the association representing the 450 guys, 22 teams, when you can include two players that we are talking about bringing about 375 players of Orlando, florida, and it is not surprising, there is not a uniform view among the players. My feeling is that we will be able to work through most of these issues over the next few weeks, but as I said, we also have an agreement with the player association, where if a player chooses not to come, this is not a violation of his contract. We are willing to accept. “

No players have been definitively stated that they will jump at the games of Disney yet, but the idea has been mentioned. Dwight Howard would be uncertain whether he will play. Carmelo Anthony is in the same boat. The NBA is in the process of forming a committee of doctors to assess the risk to the health of the entrants in the bubble, especially the older coaches, but it is not clear at this point that the power, they would have to respect the people or dock their pay if they decide not to play despite being healthy enough to do so.

Damian Lillard later appeared on “SportsCenter” and said that while he is not fully comfortable with the setup program in Orlando, he is willing to take a risk both for its own sake and for what his presence can mean to others.

“I don’t feel 100% comfortable, but that is a risk I’m willing to take. As I mentioned earlier, this is what we do, it is our job, and this is the way we take care of our families. And also as I mentioned earlier, this is my way of providing for communities, an impact on my community. To play the game I love, to resume the season, you know that I think it’s a risk I’m willing to take. “

Silver echoed those sentiments. There are risks, but there is no perfect solution here, so that the NBA goal is simply to put in place the best and the most secure of the season, it can.

“We believe that this is what we do. We have put on the NBA basketball. For the country, we believe that it will be a respite from the enormous difficulties involved in their lives today. And I also think that in terms of issues of social justice, this will be an opportunity for the players of the NBA and the greater community to draw attention to these problems, because the world’s attention will be on the NBA Orlando, in Florida, if we can get there. “

A number of players, including Irving, Bradley and Howard, have argued that the return of the NBA would actually do more harm than good. Never social of the reform of the justice system had such a momentum at the national level, and the players are concerned that the game could distract people and take their attention from the bigger issues at play right now.

The money did not go directly to the address of all the plans that the league has to highlight these issues to Disney, and talks are ongoing. It has been argued that players could use their downtime in Orlando, of which there will probably be many, to defend the causes in which they believe, and also evokes the idea of a series of speakers to Orlando with guests chosen by the players. But if the NBA plans to directly present any kind of organized message against racism during the games, it is not yet known.

This situation is fluid. The union or the virus could still return to the potentially resumption of the season. But the Money message of optimism. Although the NBA will not regret it, as it normally does, he expects the season to be concluded as planned in Orlando.
