Lakers, Clippers would consider taking their title quests to a neutral site

first_imgLet’s say that the NBA is, in fact, able to build a basketball bubble to carry out the remainder of the season.Commissioner Adam Silver cautioned this week that talk of holding games again anywhere, including at a neutral site with teams quarantined to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, is purely speculative. In a remote video conversation with Ernie Johnson, host of TNT’s “Inside The NBA,” Silver reasserted that the league will adhere to advice from health experts before making any decisions about restarting a season that was halted March 11.That said, the commissioner ventured an opinion about the wide-ranging impact of bringing back NBA basketball, a $7 billion business: “Beyond the virtue of crowning a champion, what will the symbolism be of major league sports starting back up in this country?”Yes, but back to that part about crowning a champion. That piece might prove plenty meaningful to Los Angeles – even if it occurs away from the city. Video: What LeBron James said about Jacob Blake … ‘Black people in America are scared’ “If it means we get to play and continue our pursuit for the goal that we want, I feel like one of the Dr. Seuss titles: ‘I will play anywhere. I will play in a house, I will play (with) a mouse,’ ” said Clippers Coach Doc Rivers, who said his team wants to continue its pursuit of the organization’s first championship.“That’s how you feel. I think that’s how our team feels. We don’t care where, when, why, what – we just want to go after our goal.”Major League Baseball also has discussed the premise of starting up play at a neutral site, according to an ESPN report that described talks of having all 30 teams play at Phoenix-area stadiums without fans.For his part, LeBron James – whose Western Conference-leading Lakers also wish badly to continue their title chase – said he’d be willing to discuss the idea.“I think the line of communication is open, not only from the owners, from the players, from the whole league, from Adam Silver and everyone,” James told reporters on a Zoom call Wednesday. “Obviously, the No. 1 thing is the safety and the well-being of all of us here in America first, and getting this pandemic under control. On Mamba Night, the Lakers make short work of Blazers to take 3-1 series lead “Look,” said Lawrence Frank, the Clippers’ president of basketball operations, “these are unusual times that you have to be really adaptable.”And all indications are that the NBA is motivated to test its dexterity, according to Rob Pelinka, the Lakers’ general manager.“Everyone has this hope and desire to find a way to finish the season,” he said Wednesday. “They are looking at every option to get to the end. Including fanless games. Including remote locations where teams could gather and create as safe an environment as possible. The messaging coming from the league is, ‘We are thinking long, hard about what this could look like to get to the end.’“We’ll put the health of the world and our fans and our players first and foremost, but hopefully once we get past this initial phase where we’re all putting in these efforts to flatten the curve, if we see success there, hopefully it will get to a place where we can see more definitively what those plans might look like.“But I think it’s too early to know.” “I believe once that’s under control and they allow us to resume some type of activity, I would love to get the season back going. I feel like we’re in a position where we can get back and start to compete for a championship, get back to doing what we love to do, making our Laker faithful proud of us, of being back on the floor.“And if it’s in one single isolated destination – if it’s Las Vegas or somewhere else that can hold us and keep us in the best possible chance to be safe, not only on the floor but also off the floor as well – then those conversations will be had.”Related Articlescenter_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Photos: Lakers defeat Trail Blazers in Game 4 of first-round playoff series Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and other NBA stars pay tribute to Kobe Bryant Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
