Shaquille O'Neal thinks National Basketball Association season should be canceled”

Apart from suggesting that the season be scrapped immediately, the 48-year-old current TNT analyst bared that whoever wins the title this 2019-20 will have an "asterisk" on their resume.

The 2019-20 campaign was halted in March with five regular-season games and two months of play-offs remaining. Lakers forward Jared Dudley argued that the National Basketball Association should find a way to play safely and carry out the season. "Everybody go home, get healthy, come back next year", O'Neal said. They're not going to get respect. "I mean, they can be playing until Labor Day". "There's going to be an asterisk behind that championship", O'Neal said, via the New York Post.

"It matters because looking at the fans starts your adrenaline", O'Neal said.

I think the folks I've talked to have said, "We can go as long as we need". So, scrap it. Worry about the safety of the fans and the people.

Silver is said to have also informed players about the possibility of games without fans next season, which O'Neal says could affect the mindest of NBAers.

He added, "All it takes is one person".

Players would be housed in a secure area with testing to check for the virus.

The NBA is still keeping the door open for resuming play this season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, though still doesn't have any set plans to do so.

"You know how many games I won just by going into opponents" arenas and fans look at me insane? What if one person gets sick and there's nobody? However long it takes for us to get 100% back to normal, I'm willing to wait. "There's not a mechanism in it that works to properly accept a cap when you've got so much uncertainty; when we'd be going in next season saying, "Well, our revenue could be $10bn or it could be $6bn".

During a conference call Friday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver reportedly tabbed Orlando and Las Vegas as potential locations for Eastern and Western conference games, respectively, should the league resume play this season.

The NBA and NBPA share revenue on a 51-49 split of basketball-related income.
