Bucks co-partner Marc Lasry expects NBA to return in 6-to-8 weeks — Sixers Wire

There is some real momentum now for a possible NBA return. The league has been looking into “bubble sites” such as Orlando’s Disney World as well as The Strip on Las Vegas. Orlando continues to gain momentum and traction as the spot for the league to resume and with the NBA allowing teams to begin to expand workouts beginning on June 1, there are now serious ideas for a resumption date.

Milwaukee Bucks co-managing partner Marc Lasry joined CNBC and he gave a rough timeline for when he thinks the league will resume:

I think we’ll have something, hopefully within the next 6 to 8 weeks, we should be playing.

A lot of people believe that whoever comes out on top as the champion in 2020 should have an asterisk next to it, but Lasry does not believe that as he added:

Everybody is going to talk about, ‘Well, it was difficult’. It was different. It was without fans. Yeah, but then you’re still an NBA champion. You’re still the champion.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be one of those teams fighting with the Bucks for a spot in the NBA Finals and a chance to eventually contend for a championship. It will be interesting to see how the teams look. Coach Brett Brown did say he does not want the Sixers to use the pandemic as an excuse to not be ready to go.
