Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma claims 2020-21 season should take place in Hawaii
Los Angeles Lakers small forward Kyle Kuzma believes the 2020-21 season should take place in Hawaii if the NBA is forced to do a bubble scenario again.
National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts says returning to a bubble might be the only feasible way for the NBA to complete the 2020-21 season.
Nba has done amazing job with safety & protocols. Make the bubble Hawaii. Simple🤷🏽♂️ https://t.co/7ldQH5PJu6

“If tomorrow looks like today, I don’t know how we say we can do it differently,” Roberts told ESPN in a phone interview Tuesday afternoon. “If tomorrow looks like today, and today we all acknowledge — and this is not Michele talking, this is the league, together with the PA and our respective experts saying, ‘This is the way to do it’ — then that’s going to have to be the way to do it.”
So far, the NBA has gone three weeks without a positive COVID-19 test inside the bubble at Walt Disney World — all despite of rumors about women being sneaked into the location as well as some players leaving due to deceptive reasons.
Nothing is set in stone, but the 2020-21 season could start around December. It’s doubtful Kuzma will get his wish and the season will take place in Hawaii, but you can’t fault the Lakers youngster for trying.
This year’s Lakers, led by superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, have a good shot of winning the title. The Purple and Gold have the best record in the Western Conference standings with the seeding games set to start on Thursday.
