I guess this is as good a place as any for this but I wasn’t aware until today that the league has issued luxury tax relief this season. That really benefits GS and Brooklyn.

Warriors plan for fans

"Warriors fan plan includes $30M for testing
The pitch to the state of California and local officials in San Francisco includes the most accurate form of COVID-19 testing for every fan, Warriors employee and player for each home game or visit to Chase Center. Lacob told ESPN the team is prepared to pay for it at a cost of up to $30 million.

They would use rapid PCR tests or the equivalent, a recent offering that turns around results in 15 minutes and are 99 percent accurate. They are far more expensive and less readily available than the more invasive, and slower, rapid antigen tests..."

Allowing fans into the luxury boxes with rapid testing makes sense. That is where a large part of their fan revenue comes from, and each box is isolated.

Sources: The NBA is targeting Dec. 11-19 for 2020-21 preseason and teams have the option of requesting three or four games. Each team must host at least one home game.

If Paul ends up in Phoenix, the Pacific Division will be brutal (Lakers, Clippers, Warriors, Suns and Kings). Usually divisions don’t mean much. But the NBA is said to be trying to limit travel this season and at one point brought up teams in the same divisions (which generally means closer geographically) possibly playing more games against each other, at least in proportion to non-division opponents.

The English Premier League is targeting right before Xmas to allow fans, but it will most likely be tiered.

We are months away from the vaccine distribution.

I get that people are excited to get back to normal, but can we not wait just a few more months?

It's crazy that we had more outrage about OJ killing two people in a jealous rage, than killing 240,000 people due to neglect and political agendas.

Is it because they are mostly old? I bet some thought, oh well, at least we don't have to pay as much social security and medicare money.

Even after vaccine distribution, Fauci says we still have to wear masks and social distance so I don't think it will ever be back to normal.
