Los Angeles Lakers vice president of basketball operations and general manager Rob Pelinka talks with USA Today about the NBA’s plan to resume the season.
“The fundamental tenet that plans around the nba restart on campus in Orlando is can we create an environment there that is safer than in an environment in the real world?. All of us see the reports, the numbers and the spikes in the various cities we live in and parts of Florida. Yes, of course, those numbers are daunting. But the whole purpose of creating this environment is not to have the virus be there and keep the virus on the outside. The protocols are extensive and are thoughtful.”
Yesterday Florida set the state record in the number of new coronavirus cases in a single day with 11,458.
