We definitely didn’t already forget to publish this on time only three weeks into the series...

Every Monday at 5:00 PM Central (for the foreseeable future) this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. This is your place to discuss all the NBA’s action happening during the week when the Bucks are off-duty.

This week’s NBA Game Thread is coming to you late on this Monday absolutely NOT because Riley forgot to put together the 50-60 words necessary to publish it, but because of other site programming.

Anyone who questions that version of events risks their ability to win Fan Post of the Week honors in future MMMRs.

One should note that things are starting to get a bit rocky for the NBA with the first wave of game postponements underway thanks to outbreaks of COVID-19:

I’ll be honest, I don’t know all that much about the NBA’s protocols for when a player or someone they’re in contact with tests positive. By its virulent nature, COVID is prone to spread relatively quickly under the right circumstances, and so a positive test of a player would logically endanger the entire roster and any other teams they’ve played in the recent past. Once an outbreak starts, it’s safe to assume it’ll move as quickly as the NBA’s private jets can take it across the country amid a schedule that has seen the Bucks, for example, already make three road trips, with only a day between their game in New York City and Miami.

Anyways, it looks like the league may be bringing in more bodies to bridge the gap:

For now, the games shall intermittently continue, and you can continue to intermittently comment about whatever’s happening elsewhere here on this thread!
