Mark Cuban on the logistics behind the NBA returning: “If I had to guess, I would say we do it with no fans until we’re absolutely certain that we account for the safety of fans… Sports play such an important role in our society right now. If the experts tell us to disinfect everybody doing A, B, and C, then they go into a confined area, then play a game presented with robotic cameras, my guess is that we would do it. Sports are so important to us right now. We need something to cheer for. We need something to get excited about, we need something to connect our community, and we want something to root for. If the NBA can lead the charge, hopefully we can.” (Segment Above, FULL Interview Below)
