Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey believes that a quick restart will not make that big of a difference, as there will not be a competitive disadvantage between the NBA teams.
Players aren’t going to be back in NBA shape, with Morey saying this will depend on the plan of the league executives, during an Instagram Live session with Cayleigh Griffin and television partner AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
“My guess — and this is up to the commissioner and the plans they’re putting together — is we’re going to have to shorten any plans to a tighter window than people are going to be comfortable with.”
“The reality is, it’s not going to make that big of a difference. You want to get the quality high enough, but because everyone’s going to be dealing the same ramp up , there won’t be any relative advantage developed between the teams.”
Maybe even the first couple of games aren’t perfect, but both teams are going to be dealing with the same thing. … We’re all going to have to do our best in a probably shortened time period,” the Rockets GM continued.
The NBA is trying to find ways for a more smooth transition, but the situation will not be normal in any case for the teams should the season resume.
