Mark Cuban went on WFAA yesterday and dropped this optimism nugget that we all need right now:
“Hopefully by the middle of May, we’re starting to get back to normal and the NBA is playing games,” Cuban said. “Maybe not with fans, but we’re playing it because sports plays such an important role. You know, people want something to cheer for, people want something to rally around, people want something to be excited about…
“I mean you know no one has perfect information right now, and so all decisions are tough. But, you know, if I had to guess based off the people I’ve talked to at the CDC and other places — I would say that the over under would be June 1, and I’m taking the under.”

Now I don’t actually think that this can happen just because of everything I read online and that Adam Silver himself said that he doesn’t anticipate this puppy coming back until June or July. So I really don’t know what to believe. I know this is going to be really hard to believe but I am not a doctor by any means. So I just watch TV during these hard times and listen to what the doctors are saying and from all I am hearing this might be delayed for a long time. Who knows. But at least Mark Cuban saying this gives us some glimmer of hope that not only will sports be back soon but normal life could resume as well.
