It’s not quite as simple as a coronavirus outbreak sweeping the NBA.
But with that in mind, there is a growing chorus of voices suggesting the All-star Game should be delayed for one reason or another.
A growing number of experts have also raised the spectre of a pandemic, with one of them, Bill James, calling the 2018 event “a major threat” to the NBA and the United States.
And while there are still some details still to be worked out, there are concerns over the quality of the players and teams on the field.
And this year, the NBA will be hosting its second All-Stars Game in six years.
As the game’s biggest draw, the All Star Game is a major draw, and that’s an important one, said James, author of the best-selling book The King and I: A Sports Spectacular, and a former commissioner of the NBA, when he was asked to comment on whether or not the game could be postponed.
The NBA is “very, very big” and has the capacity to do whatever it wants, James said.
But it is also an institution.
And to have the All Stars, and not a lot of them at the moment, make it through the year and then the season is about to start, that’s going to be a problem.
So, in some ways, I think we should probably wait and see what the consensus is.
“If you look at the All Sports Awards, I’m sure there’s a lot more consensus than there was about a few years ago,” he said.
“I think it’s fair to say that we’ll probably see it a lot longer than that.”
James said he was not sure whether there would be a coronovirus outbreak and suggested the Allstar Game was the “biggest threat” in sports.
He suggested that players might be more susceptible to contracting the virus if they weren’t allowed to play in the AllStar Game, and said that the NBA has a “pretty robust plan” to protect the game from pandemic threats.
“But it would be premature to rule out any kind of pandemic in this case,” James said in a statement to ESPN.
“As an institution, the National Basketball Association and its teams are committed to making sure that we do everything we can to protect our players, our fans and our fans’ health and well-being.”
But James added that the Allstars would need to show “greater awareness and vigilance” to prevent an outbreak.
“It would be unfair to suggest that the players who have been selected would be immune,” James wrote.
“The game is a big business, and they are responsible for ensuring that they are on time, in the right place and in the correct order.
I don’t think the AllStars have a monopoly on that.”
He added: “This is not a situation that can be avoided.”
A potential pandemic for the Allspast A potential outbreak could be a “big, big problem” if the NBA chooses to hold the game in 2018 instead of 2020, said Dr. Brian Tisserand, an infectious disease specialist at Duke University Medical Center.
A potential risk, he said, is that players could develop a weakened immune response and, eventually, develop a severe form of the virus.
“I think this is a real concern,” Tisse told ESPN.
Tisseris said that a recent study from the CDC showed that athletes at all levels were at risk of developing the coronaviruses in the United Kingdom and the USA.
Tissi also noted that a study from researchers at the University of Alabama School of Medicine found that players in some leagues who didn’t play in All Star games in 2019 were at increased risk of coronaviral illness.
“There’s no doubt that the exposure to this virus is high in these players,” Tisseer said.
Tissee noted that the outbreak could have severe consequences for players and fans, particularly if the All stars don’t play, and even if the game is delayed.
The potential threat is “really serious,” Tresser said, adding that he has heard from several NBA players who say they won’t be attending the game this year.
Tressers research also suggested that the spread of the coronivirus may increase in the future.
“This could be the tipping point,” he told ESPN, “that the All star game really takes off, and we get a pandemics pandemic.”
Tisseer noted that although coronavaccine research is continuing in the US, a similar study from England also found a rise in the number of coroniviruses among players.
And there is some evidence that coronavavirus could have a “significant impact” on the development of other viruses.
This could cause a “huge amount of economic impact for the game,” Tosser said in an interview with ESPN.
