BREAKING: THE NBA IS OFFICIALLY BACK ON JULY 31st, but the concept will be a bit different than what we expected

Giannis-Antetoukoumpo-LeBron-James

After several months without NBA, it seems the league has finally come up with a feasible plan for the continuation of the 2019/20 season. There was a lot of uncertainty about whether the league would continue and if they should scratch this season off. There were also several indications on different timetables for return, but now it's official the league is starting on the 31st of July.

The biggest concern was the possibility of players interacting with everyone else at the Disney complex because people are still actively practicing social distancing. It seems the league has a process in place for making sure everyone is safe, but on the other hand, the concept has changed.

Adrian Wojnarowski shared on his Twitter account several rules the league has announced when it comes to the continuation of the season. The concept will be very different, and we've highlighted the major takeaways we have the information so far.
