    Personally I disagree that all of us who were working regularly from home or at their shops should blame players that they didn't.
    It's not same working from home and doing regular job with all risks.

    I don't have a problem if any player wish to stay at home, it's natural human behavior. But if decision will be EL resume then there is no excuse if any of them don't appear on the court.

    I know my club doesn't like idea resuming this season, because we have morons in management who did a poor job. But, basketball must continue at any price, like they did in football.

    According to Serbian media majority of players told EL board that they are against continuing the season. Decision day will be Monday, though. Meeting was not mandatory.

    Some rumours now, that "Turkish airlines" is pushing to resume the season with full hosting and play in Turkey the F-8. If is true, I can see that the EL will resume

    It's really shame if competitions don't resume.. Partizan was going to go all the way in Eurocup and ABA league .

    It makes sense to resume the season only from financial point of view, other than that call the July tournament some "EL Summer League", it would be closer to what it really would be than to actual finish of 2019/20 season

    I don’t believe they should or will resume. But if miracle happens and they for some reason decide to finished the season, they should play in Ljubljana. Neutral place for everyone and 0 Covid-19 cases.

    I am not 100% sure which is the problem. These guys are professionals, which means it is their job to maintain themselves in top condition. All of those guys have gyms in their homes, that means that they can perform solo exercises. They even have semi basketball courts, I suppose. The stop was two months. These guys have one month to get in shape for national teams tourneys... So I don’t think that the issue is the players conditions, although you should not expect level to be the same as before Covid. The issue is whether the cost to resume outweighs the benefits. Financially, in the long term, certainly it does, although in the short term I doubt as I suppose the percentage of revenues coming to the teams from tv is much smaller than nba. The thing is the whole credibility of the situation. When you have local leagues in football and in basketball restating, not able to resume the biggest European competition doesn’t look too good, eh? As far as health concerns go, currently, with one venue in a low danger country and regular testing, I don’t see a big risk, at least statistically.

    Ps - of course nba is a completely different story, Go ask Giannis or LBJ if they want to play..

    beating Madrid in five games is very difficult. On the other hand, playing a Final Four and winning a match against Madrid and another against Efes is not so difficult for me
    Things like these show the need for more math in school

    If the players do not want to play (not commenting on whether they are right or wrong) what will EL and the teams do? Hold them at the gunpoint? Cut players who do not attend the games? Good luck getting players from NBA/G-League with that

    Euroleague and Eurocup are cancelled. Still there is a chance that Efes is gonna declared champion since we cannot ignore the efforts of more than 20 weeks bur even if it will be never felt like a normal championship.

    Very pitiful for Efes but shit happens. Now no money from Turkish Airlines and the players should also get cut financially. No game no money.

    In Serbia there is a rumour since 2 days that EL will have 20 participants next autumn - 18 from cancelled season, Virtus + 1 additional team.
