The coronavirus has fully immersed itself in the business of all 4 major professional sports leagues.
Conference tournaments in the NCAA are scheduled to be played without fans, some teams in the NHL are scheduled to play games without fans, same for the NBA. Heck, even the Seattle Mariners of MLB are being forced to play their home games AWAY from Seattle through the end of March.
It doesn’t even stop there.
The upcoming NCAA tournament is scheduled to be played without fans, that includes the Elite Eight and the Final Four. There are even discussions of moving the Elite Eight and Final Four to smaller locations in light of recent decisions.
The NBA might even be forced to put this season on hold, until the virus is contained to some degree.
Stephen A. Smith, like all of us, is disappointed by this news. But he knows this is a dangerous time not just for the country, but for the world.
