    I think as a possible way to salvage the season is to consider doing something to the Big 3 tournament for the NBA tournament. Isolate the teams at one spot, or two spots (EC & WC) or even 4 spots, but there is a little travel as possible. Play games in front of no audiences (or only families and staff and whomever is in quarantine too). Everyone involved in the tournament is in quarantine from 14 days before going to tournament, then at the tournament nobody comes in, but people may leave. Games are best of whatever, but played like Vegas League, every day or every other day. Clearly, not as exciting as playing in front of crowds, but a whole lot better than no NBA or worse, continues outbreak of this virus.

    True, more testing equals more diagnosis, and that's probably why the US is showing pretty quick growth of confirmed cases but it's also shows how this virus can spread pretty quickly. Memphis seems to be the normal growth pattern, and Nashville's is a little more unusual. They've been a steady 22-30 new cases a day, but Memphis started well behind and has shot past them.

    Will Coronavirus Affect the 2020-21 Salary Cap?

    Yeah, I've flipped all the way to I think NFL/College FB may get cancelled or significantly delayed and possibly the 2020 NBA season doesn't get 72 games in.

    Monday update: On Sunday, Shelby County was at 60 or 66. Shelby county (Memphis) is now at 93. Biggest jump of the counties since Saturday, more than doubling in reported new cases. Other counties mentioned/quoted above: Davidson County (Nashville) has 164. Williamson County (Brentwood/Franklin, near Nashville) has 53. Sumner is at 34. Entering the double digit counties: Knox and Hamilton (Chattanooga) at 12, Out of TN - 89. I'm concerned that Memphis is about to show some big time COVID-19 numbers. Hope I'm wrong.

    As I look at the timelines for vaccines and treatment, I'm not only less confident that we won't get a completion to this NBA season, I'm thinking there won't be a NCAA/NFL football season....maybe a shortened season, but I hope I'm not being too pessimistic, but possibly a delay on the start to next NBA season as well. Still hopeful for NBA playoffs in some capacity, but trying to be realistic about how long this could really be.

    From state of TN website that is updated more than daily: There have been 694 people tested by TN Public Health Labs, with 52 of 694 turning up positive. There have also been a reported 319 confirmed cases (tested by private labs), totaling 371 cases. Davidson County (Nashville) has 140 of those. Williamson County (Brentwood/Franklin, near Nashville) has 47. Shelby (Memphis) has 40. I think Memphis was just at 4 a couple days ago, but I'm writing this out to help my memory, because 4 to 40 is quite a jump. The only other double digit county is Sumner at 11 (also near Nashville). (Website also has "Out of TN" at 59 - not sure if that is non-TN residents that were found to be a confirmed case at a TN health clinic or what).

    What are you watching in place of sports?

    I've tried to be thinking about the positive things that might possibly be happening. Certainly the potential to be with family is #1 (it is for me). I'm sure many are wasting it or it's driving them crazy. Also, if someone is in a bad home life situation, I can't imagine what this is doing to them. I wonder if overall, fewer are getting sick right now. Less colds, less flu (obviously assuming avoidance of COVID-19). I'm getting more done around the house and probably saving money by not eating out as much. Not a ton of positives on this for a lot of people, but maybe others can suggest some.

    Did some of that. Consumed comfort food in about 1 day.
