Something is finally clear in the uncertain NBA: Players believe they’re going to play games again this season.
The obvious questions — how, where, when? — remain unanswered. Testing, part of the new normal of this coronavirus era, will be a major component to any return-to-play plan that the NBA comes up with.

“Any time I meet anybody on the street, at the grocery store, just passing by, and they hear my name, that’s the first thing. It’s the icebreaker,” Ehlo said on the show. “They have to ask me if I’m that guy that involved with ‘The Shot.’” CLICK HERE to read full story.
