Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star point guard and NBPA president Chris Paul says the suspended season due to COVID-19 is “crazy.”

Paul has been in contact with NBA commissioner Adam Silver recently. The Thunder star says everyone’s appreciation for basketball has gone up:

“In this situation, nobody knows,” Chris Paul told Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackon on All The Smoke.

“Like it’s crazy, I was talking to Adam [Silver] the other day…Shout out to Adam and the fact that he actually communicates with us and is trying to figure out what’s right. But, just there’s no answers right now. Everybody’s just basically gotta wait and see how this thing plays out. Obviously, at the end of the day, we all miss hooping…I don’t think we all realize how much we appreciate the game, or appreciate all the little things.”

NBA owners are hopeful of resuming the season in the summer. However, that’s only possible if the virus dies down.

Paul and the Thunder were headed for the playoffs before the season was suspended. OKC had a solid record of 40-24. The Thunder were in the fifth spot in the Western Conference standings.

It would be devastating if the 2019-20 season is canceled altogether. We are all hoping for the best in this situation.
