CJ McCollum made an interesting statement while speaking with former NBA player Jay Williams.

The superstar of the Portland Trail Blazers believes 150 NBA players are living ‘paycheck to paycheck’ due to the coronavirus.

McCollum also told Williams that the league is on pace to lose about ‘23.5 percent of income of this season’.

The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement allows the league to reduce player salaries by 1/92.6th for each game missed because of, among other things, epidemics.
