I would bet $10 that the 2019-20 NBA season will never play another game, regular season nor playoffs.

I wouldn't be surprised either.

I wonder how this all affects the arena remodel plan. Might we see some games at the Madhouse on McDowell?

If the season (or at least regular season) is canceled soon, it could actually allow an early start on the renovation perhaps (unless construction is banned next).

I am curious what stipulations are in the CBA or maybe individual player contracts about services provided by the team. I can't imagine the facility at MoM would allow anything close to what the worst NBA arena provides now.

I would say that TSRA is probably close to or is the worst NBA arena right now, and MoM is nowhere remotely close to as nice as TSRA is. On a positive note, it would look less empty with current attendance. :D
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

And wouldn't it look cool if debris is raining down while fans are stomping their feet?

I think that's part of the charm...and a requirement for home court advantage.

They can't win at Talking Stick, might as well give the Coliseum a shot!

I think the league is going to try very very hard to finish off this season and crown a champion. I'd actually prefer to see that and then push next season to a later start, Christmas as many have suggested.

I was at the public scrimmage they had at MoM a few years ago. It was fun to go back and see the place again and see a Suns game there, but man oh man was it not ready to host an NBA scrimmage, much less a game.
