  1. The only reason not to televise it would be ....I honestly can't think of a reason. They televise the NBA Summer League, and some of the preseason games. There are no secrets to hide from other teams. People are desperate for games. I would watch someone facebook live stream with an iPhone 4.

    So, on return, how will the minutes be divided

    Is Grayson Allen going to be with the team? Heard conflicting reports. When he does return, is he any better than Konchar? I do somewhat look forward to hearing some reports about the competition in practices. With all healthy, there should be some battles for minutes, and for some, a chance to showcase for their FA contract.

    over/under 15 players to sit out

    Lionel Hollins not going to Orlando as he is considered a higher risk individual. Lakers going to have quite a few outside the bubble.

    Grizz 8 Games

    This was posted in the other thread, but if you haven't seen the scrimmage schedule: They play every other day starting 7/24. 76ers. Houston. And Miami.

    ORLANDO BUBBLE

    Glad to play Portland early. Their record was partially due to many of these guys getting injured, and now they are back healthy, but they haven't played together, at all. I don't know how much continuity a team has from playing together 4 months ago, but I'd rather play Portland earlier rather than later.

    Geesh, do any Nets players want to play? Although, they are almost down to last year's squad. They might do better.

    It probably doesn't help the narrative that all teams are going to play 1 B2B in Orlando, and the Grizzlies 2nd game of their B2B is against the Pelicans. Either way, the Grizzlies have a 3.5 game lead with 8 games to play. If they can't retain that 8th spot, they don't deserve to be in the play in game. And given they will be spotted 1 game in the 8-9 play in game, if they lose to Pelicans during the 8 game season, and twice during the play-in tournament, the Pelicans would be the deserving team.

    I'm thinking that this schedule might not be the worst thing. If HCA means nothing, playing teams already in the playoffs isn't as bad as playing teams fighting to get in. For example, if this was 2013, and the Grizzlies were already locked into their playoff spot, I'd be wanting to go into these 8 games like it was a preseason. Win a few, but keep the minutes light on Zach, Marc, MC, and Tony so that they are ready for the playoffs. The difference between 5-3 and 2-6 wouldn't be worth putting 40+ minutes on starters legs. The key games are those Portland and Pelicans games.

    COVID-19 POSITIVE NBA PLAYERS

    To me the mask is not the bigger issue. Masks are to be worn inside or when social distancing is not possible. It's pretty easy to not be within 15 feet of anyone for a whole afternoon of tennis. Social distancing is still better than wearing a mask. The much bigger issue is he is out in public. He should be away from as many people as possible, although it is possible that he really could have gone to tennis, and not come within 50 feet of anybody that he's not already interacting with. He could still be isolated and play tennis with someone he is already living with. Honestly, this is the kind of "snitching" headline that might be bad, or might be nothing at all.As long as it is as distraction for the Kings, I'm OK.

    So, on return, how will the minutes be divided

    Do we see all 17 guys in all 8 games? Did they modify the rules at all?

    Playoff/play-in games - fox regional sports?

    I was just wondering this question. I'm thinking that part of the reason for the 8 games was so that the team tv affiliates could broadcast games to satisfy the contracts. That may be wrong reasoning, but I believe Fox Southeast will carry most if not all the games.

    I probably am.

    For 8th, Kings, Pelicans & Blazers are all effectively 3.5 games behind Grizzlies. If Grizzlies win 4, that means for any to pass them, they would need to win 7 to jump us. If Grizzlies win 3, that means for any to pass, they would need to win 6. That is, to me, the only realistic scenario where Grizzlies aren't in 8th place. If Grizzlies win 2 of 8, they probably sit 9th or out, and probably don't deserve it. Also, for all practical purposes, if they sweep those Portland and Pelicans, I don't think the play-in games will be needed.

    I guess Dallas's magic number is 2 games. If they win one, and Memphis goes undefeated, I believe the Grizzlies have higher winning percent, but a Dallas win and Memphis loss eliminates the Grizzlies from 7th. To keep from triggering the play-in game, the Grizzlies have to actually have a better record than any of those teams over the 8 games. So if they all go 5-3, a 6-2 record eliminates the need for a play-in tournament, I believe.
