ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the NBA’s season will “[model] a 22-team format” and is proposed to restart on July 31. Wojnarowski cites a source saying “a last possible date for a Finals Game 7 lands on Oct. 12” (ESPN).

The NBA’s Board of Governors is set to hear a proposal from Commissioner Adam Silver at its meeting tomorrow, Thursday, June 4. Wojnarowski adds that there is “room for the league to maneuver on the structure” and that “owners… will [likely] fall into line and overwhelmingly approve the commissioner’s recommendation.”

  1. My son and I are set to arrive at WDW on 8/10. We would not be happy if we were bumped from our hotel due to NBA players and or staff. We are scheduled to stay at the Boardwalk.
