Jared Dudley seems to think the season will go on as planned.
. Ever since March 11th, the NBA has had to close its doors and there is a healthy debate going on right now about whether or not the league should continue playing games without fans. Some think the season should be outright canceled while others want to see it go on in a safe environment.
Jared Dudley of the Los Angeles Lakers has been outspoken in this regard and today, he noted that he thinks the league will come back this year and that Adam Silver has a solid plan in place. In fact, Dudley says the league will be testing players on a consistent basis and that it will be very safe to return.

“If we don’t hit a spike and we don’t have a second wave of corona come back in the next two, three weeks, I am 100% confident, me personally, that we will figure out a way to have a season,’’ Dudley said Newsday. “Adam Silver has already come out and said he’ll make a decision in two to four weeks, so around that June 8 to 12 type of date, expect a decision. Hopefully the 15th, we go into training camp… I could see by that second week of July us playing games, in a neutral site, bubble.”
This should come as great news to basketball fans as it shows just how interested Adam Silver is in getting things back up and running. Hopefully, Dudley is right and we get basketball back this summer.
