I heard moving Olympics to 2021.Yahoo had a interesting article some info that I like. Ive always thought starting the season around Christmas made sense
even before any of this.https://sports.yahoo.com/christmas-day-start-2020-21-164004211.html
Stein also reported that, "key NBA figures welcome an experiment with radical changes, such as contesting the NBA Finals in August, pushing free agency into September and starting the 2020-21 season on Christmas Day."
Here, financial considerations reign again. Sure, there's a cost to shaving off a quarter of the 2020-21 regular season, but owners would surely choose that over losing an entire postseason's worth of games (especially a postseason as anticipated as this one). Plus, as far as alternative schedules go, a league calendar year running from December to September mitigates competition with the NFL regular season.
According to Stein, discussions on this timeline have increased to a point where the league is directing teams to actively seek out dates and venues (G League arenas, etc.) for potential games deep into the summer.
