- When you think about it, then it is almost inhumane for them not to smoke marijuana, have Harrington previously said to The Athletic.
Basket-teams have had to find a lot of creative gimmicks to get the time to go with while they are waiting to play. In addition to training basketball, of course.
Among other things, there will be played a lot of video games, golf, volleyball, table tennis and much more. And a little fishing is also time.

All of the NBA teams are moved to Disney World in Florida, so they in isolation can get settled the rest of the current season without the danger of coronavirus.
Here there is space for the accommodation of teams, as well as the opportunity to keep them employed when they are not playing, now where they must not come in contact with friends, lovers, and family up to 13. October, where the season is expected færdigsspillet.
It is also one of the reasons that the players will not be tested for the consumption of cannabis and other narcotic substances by the NBA.
thus, they can better overcome the boredom, says.

already played the NBA playoffs and finals over a compressed period of time, but corona-the pandemic has made that the teams should play even more matches in a short time.
Each of the 22 involved team must reach to play eight matches the 'regular season'matches towards the middle of august, when the playoffs start.
Then comes the finals, which after the plan is definitely 13. October, eight days before the next season was originally supposed to start. It is expected, however, postponed to december.

the Players were tested two times within the first half day after arrival to Disney World.
It is planned that both players, coaches and the press need to be tested often.
the League has, however, announced that any smittetilfælde not to shut the season down, as long as there is talk about a few people.
They will then be placed in quarantine for 14 days.
The same applies, if players or other leave 'the bubble', as three players have done in the past.
Among other things, left, and Lou Williams to the area to take to the funeral, as he was allowed to, but he had to be quarantined anyway, because he was at the strip-club afterwards.
the NBA has also arranged a 'snitch hotline', so that people can squeal about any detours from the area.
the League has, in turn, registered zero infected players out of all the 346, which are assembled in Disney World, and is therefore driven well and truly in the position to resume the season.

The overriding reason for the somewhat unexpected arena is as described in the corona-the pandemic's ravages in the country.
IN the UNITED states, more than 4.4 million people infected with the virus and among other things, Florida, where the NBA circus is assembled, is particularly hard hit.
And therefore if one takes also no chances from the organisers ' side.
In an article from the NBA's website describes the sports journalist Shaun Powell, how the procedure is tight right from the check-in.
’To get past the two surly security guards, are headed down in a ballroom, get an electronic bracelet, which magically opens to a hotel room, will be escorted to the room and ordered to stay there to 2021,’ he writes in a somewhat exaggerated time frame.
Here we are testing the health care workers wearing protective suits, people in Disney World. It happens with temperature measurement as well as the cotton ball-sticks in the nostrils.
’A technician knocked on the door and stood three meters away, when I opened. He also refused to enter, before I had left the room. It must be one of the few places in Florida, taking the virus seriously,’ says Shaun Powell.
In all, the NBA had to post well over a billion dollars, $ 170 million, to settle the tournament and pay health and other staff.
the NBA season resumes this Thursday.
