The coronavirus pandemic has shut the league down for nearly three weeks, and with how the virus is trending in North America, it could be a long while before games are even allowed to be played. Mark Cuban admits he isn’t sure about what’s going to happen moving forward.

“I have no idea. The only thing I know is that we’re gonna put safety first and we’re not gonna take any chances…I haven’t had any conversations where anybody’s even discussed an actual date at this point.” said Cuban when was asked on ESPN’s Get Up whether he can predict when the season will resume.

The league is still mulling over a variety of options, some of which include going straight to the postseason, playing all the games in one location without fans in attendance.

Jimmy Butler has chance to send Heat to Finals, can’t deliver after clanking wide open three off front of rim

Published

on

The Miami Heat were so close to competing the comeback and heading off the NBA Finals.

They were down by two and had possession with less than 20 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Instead of managing the clock and waiting as long as possible to get a shot off, Butler tried to take advantage of having a wide open shot and fired off a transition three with no defenders around him with still 17 seconds left. Unfortunately for the Heat, Butler simply didn’t get enough lift into the shot and clanked it off the front of the rim.

By the end of it all, Celtics won by four and find themselves off to the next round while the Heat are forced to reminisce over what went wrong.

Pascal Siakam accomplished something that not a lot of players that failed to make the All-Star team can do.

The Toronto Raptors forward was officially selected to the 2022 edition of the All-NBA third team after receiving 42 third-team votes and seven second-team votes.

The 28-year old played exceptional on both ends of the floor, and bounced back after a rough pandemic-shortened campaign in Tampa Bay. He averaged 22.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists through 68 games in 2021/22.

Siakam is just the third player in franchise history to receive the honour (Vince Carter, DeMar DeRozan). It marks the second time in his career he was selected to an All-NBA team. He was previously selected to an All-NBA second team after an impressive All-Star season in 2019/2020.
