NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley is ‘100 percent sure’ the league will resume the season.
Barkley revealed that he spoke to some executives at Turner and he is certain the NBA will restart the season either in Florida or Las Vegas.
“(The NBA is) gonna make a decision in the next week. I’m 100% sure we’re going to play. I know my friends in Major League Baseball are going to play. I know that the hockey league is going to play. I think the pro football and the college football, they have to sit back and see how it goes for us.
You can’t stop the playoffs. I think a team’s gonna have to just forfeit a series. If any of their players —not even their best player, gets the virus. You’re going to have to sequester the entire team and they’re gonna have to forfeit a round of the playoffs. They’re gonna be gone from the playoffs,” Barkley said during his appearance on ESPN’s The Paul Finebaum Show, via Andrew Joe Potter of The Score.
