With the NBA set to return in less than three weeks, there is still plenty of time for an outbreak in the Disney Bubble to completely derail the 2019-20; 2020 NBA season. Should that not happen then we are in store for a sports experience unlike any other with the 22 NBA teams (13 from the West & 9 from the East) living in a bubble competing for the Larry O'Brien Trophy. Ain't it fun, Rajon?
Seeding games start on July 30th. If you're unfamiliar with that term don't sweat...it's new. Essentially the NBA is switching things up given the world Worldwide Pandemic situation to make sure Zion is in the playoffs,,,, I mean to make things more competitive!! This video explains it all in a much more exciting way than I could since I cannot type a dunk.
With games returning that means gambling is back as well! I don't know about you, but I'm medium key more excited about that than the actual return of sports. I need that rush again. I think that last few months have shown us there are a lot more important things than sports, so thank God for gambling to make you feel alive during it. How else are you supposed to care about Kings vs Pelicans?
Maybe you have some funemployment money burning a hole in your pocket? Perhaps you've held on to that one time $1200 payment from Uncle Sam because it was more than anybody could've ever needed and you're looking for a way to invest? Well then I have some great news for you! NBA odds are out! There’s two games playing on the 30th. Utah vs New Orleans where the Pelicans open as 2.5-point favorites. The second game of the night will be the Clippers vs Lakers where the Lake Show opens as 1.5-point favorites.
The last game I watched before Covid (I mean it still was around, but before the U.S. decided it was bad) was Celtics-Pacers on March 10th. The C's were a 3.5 point favorite and ended up winning by only three so ya boi has been itching at a chance at redemption for almost four months. So please just keep wearing your mask and washing ya grubby hands so we can maybe have a normalish 2021. We are potentially less than three weeks away from being able to put some scratch on the NBA and forgot for a few hours about the fact that 135k and counting Americans have died!
