Kevin Love hopes the NBA will not permanently alter the schedule, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The league wants to finish the season during the summer and start the next season in December. If that works, the NBA plans to make this change permanent.
Here is what the forward of the Cleveland Cavaliers said in a an appearance on the Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah, via Chris Fedor of cleveland.com.
“We have the best schedule. IT’s a scholastic schedule and you get summers off.
I’ve done it for 25 years now of organized basketball, where it’s September and October (to start) and if you go all the way to the Finals, it’s through June and then get the summers off. We have it really good and that’s not lost on any of us.
Obviously drastic times, drastic measures, but would like to keep the same schedule and 82 games.”
